Schefter: Ross wants Philbin, Ireland wants McCoy

Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that word around the league is that Stephen Ross wants to hire Joe Philbin while Jeff Ireland wants to hire Mike McCoy. It will be interesting to see who wins this battle and if Ireland gets his way then we really know he is here for the long haul and Ross has total belief in him.

Chris Mortensen of ESPN is reporting that he thinks Philbin is the favorite but that McCoy caught their attention with his interview early this week.


  1. I'm sure Jeff Fisher is smiling at this one. The final decision here will be very telling as to what type of owner Ross is. If Philbin is hired, it means that Ross (non-football person) can overrule Ireland (football person) at any time. The exact scenario that Fisher was trying to avoid. I hope Ireland wins because, in my view, McCoy is the better candidate.
