Denver Broncos general manager John Elway called his team "soft" earlier in the week but largely pledged confidence in his players and his coaching staff.

The Broncos replaced McCoy with quarterbacks coach Bill Musgrave, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

McCoy was sacked by the Broncos a day after they fell to 3-7 with a home loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

"Brock Osweiler will start again for the 3-6 Broncos, Paxton Lynch will be his backup, and original starter Trevor Siemian will be inactive, sources say", Rapoport continues.

The Broncos, who are 3-7 and in last place in the AFC West, are 24th in the league in points per game at 18.3.

The Denver Broncos have fired offensive coordinator Mike McCoy, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. During their six-game skid, Denver has scored 14.2 points per contest.

McCoy, 45, rejoined the Broncos this past offseason after a four-year run as the Los Angeles Chargers' head coach. Despite still sporting one of the better defensive units in the league, the Broncos troubles are now stemming from what appears to be a sluggish offensive scheme.
