NFL teams still have a month left of the regular season, and we have heard so much about Josh McDaniels and his head-coaching desire.
Josh McDaniels has shown interest in head-coaching positions in the last couple of years and he almost accepted a job with the Indianapolis Colts as a successor of Mike McCarthy after he was fired by the Green Bay Packers.
The Cleveland Browns also have an empty spot.
McDaniels decided to sidestep the rumors during his conference call Tuesday morning. He said his only focus is on the Patriots’ game against the Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins had the luck to defeat New England in four of their last five trips to Miami.
“I don’t really worry about the future. Honestly, each week is a tremendous challenge. We try to stay in the moment and focus on the task at hand, which this week is obviously considerable considering that we haven’t had a lot of success down there. This is a big challenge for us. I didn’t do nearly well enough in my role and my job last year when we went down there to Miami (a 27-20 Patriots loss), so there’s a lot for us to look at and a great defense for us to go down there and face, where they play extremely well at home,” McDaniels said.
“All the other stuff is just — it is what it is. I don’t really pay too much attention to it. I love what we do here in terms of working hard to try to come up with the best plan for our players each week, and that’s where our focus is going to remain. If that’s in the cards for me, then that’s great. I’ve said that before. But again, I’m not worried about that right now.”
That’s a relief.
