McVay worked as a Quality Control/Wide Receivers coach on the UFL's Florida Tuskers (with new Defensive Coordinator Jim Haslett) last year. Also, he was an Offensive Assistant with Tampa Bay the year prior.
"Sean is a young, energetic coach who comes from a great football background," new Head Coach Mike Shanahan said in a statement. "We are excited to have him on our staff."
McVay played Wide Receiver at the University of Miami (OH). However, he was redshirted in 2004 and did not get the chance to catch a pass from Ben Roethlisberger.
