Josh McDaniels has been making headlines these days as
he was linked to several teams in the league. It is no longer a secret that
McDaniels is interested in taking a head-coaching position, but it seems like
the Patriots offensive coordinator is not willing to accept every offer that
comes his way.
Several teams showed their interested in McDaniels and his coaching talent, including the Cincinnati Bengals. The team fired Marvin Lewis, and thought that McDaniels was the right person to fill that position.

interview with the #Bengals is happening, it
apparently won’t. Source says McDaniels is passing on Cincy’s request.”

super picky if he decides to become a head coach. The Bengals are not too
attractive for the offensive coordinator. Let’s not forget that McDaniels is
viewed as a top coaching candidate.

where they play extremely well at home,” he said a month ago.
