Colorado Buffaloes' Rip Scherer Could Leave School For Denver Broncos, According To Report

Colorado Buffaloes assistant head coach Rip Scherer could join the Denver Broncos' coaching staff if Mike McCoy leaves for the Miami Dolphins.

The Denver Broncos are already starting to prepare for the possible departure of offensive coordinator Mike McCoy to the Miami Dolphins. The Broncos are looking at adding Colorado Buffaloes assistant head coach and quarterbacks coach Rip Scherer onto the staff, according to Mile High Sports' Brandon Spano. But McCoy would need to be hired as the Dolphins' head coach for that to happen.

Spano reports that some in the Buffs' crowd believe Scherer would be named the new Broncos offensive coordinator. However, other sources close to the Broncos believe current quarterbacks coach Adam Gase would be promoted to the fill position. What is certain, according to Spano, is that the team has already asked for permission to interview Scherer.

Scherer joined Jon Embree's staff at Colorado last January while working with John Fox and the Carolina Panthers before that.
