Dolphins Coaching Search: Mike McCoy Believes Himself To Be Favorite, According To Report

The Miami Dolphins continue their search for a head coach, but one of the candidates already believes he's in the lead: Mike McCoy, the Denver Broncos' offensive coordinator, is so confident he'll land the Miami job that he canceled his interview with the Oakland Raiders, reports Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, citing a source.

The Dolphins are still considering two other candidates. Todd Bowles, who served as interim head coach after Miami dismissed Tony Sparano, is in the running. So is Green Bay Packers offensive coordinator Joe Philbin. Salguero says those two have drawn interest from other teams, but neither has removed his name from consideration for the Dolphins job.

Under McCoy, the Broncos led the NFL in rushing attempts and yards, and ranked No. 6 in yards per carry. Despite the success in the running game, Denver ranked No. 23 in yards and No. 25 in points due to a severe deficiency in the passing game.
