Josh McDaniels Could Be Staying With Patriots

  • The Super Bowl LII festivities are underway in Minnesota ahead of Sunday's game between New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles

THE break-up of the New England Patriots' coaching staff continued on Tuesday as the Indianapolis Colts named Josh McDaniels as the team's new head coach.

In fact, Mark Maske of the Washington Post reported that the deal is nearing its completion. On Monday, the Detroit Lions officially announced that Matt Patricia will be their new head coach. Philadelphia won that game, beating Vince Lombardi and Bart Starr, and repeated history on Sunday by beating the New England Patriots with Tom Brady and Bill Belichick.

For weeks now, McDaniels has been mentioned in conjunction with the Colts head coach opening, nearly immediately after Chuck Pagano was relieved from the role after six years on the sidelines for Jim Irsay's team.

That should put assistant quarterbacks coach Jerry Schuplinski in the best possible position for a promotion.

McDaniels to the Colts garnered the highest grade of coaching search season from yours truly, primarily because I didn't believe the Colts could land the gem of this coaching class, and I was concerned about Luck's health following a lengthy recovery from shoulder surgery.


The New England Patriots' coaching staff shakeup won't stop with its two coordinators. Likely one of the main reasons why McDaniels took the job with the Colts is because of Andrew Luck.

Both hires have been expected for a while, but the National Football League required teams to wait and make the announcements official until the end of the Patriots season. He spent the 2011 season as an offensive coordinator in St. Louis before returning to the Patriots.

However, Rob Gronkowski, the Patriots' all-world tight end, virtually confirmed McDaniels' pending departure.

"Sometimes", he said in the days leading up to Super Bowl LII, "I think failure is a great teacher".

Patricia, meanwhile, whom the Giants considered for their head coaching vacancy, was ready to take the next step in his career, but not before showing honest gratitude for Belichick's mentorship.
