Report: Josh McDaniels Receiving Head Coaching Interest
New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels has attracted the attention of many teams and this head coaching interest has been making headlines for a really long time. McDaniels accepted a coaching job not so long ago, but he changed his mind and decided to stay with the Patriots.
Jason La Canfora from CBS Sports reported that McDaniels has attracted a lot of attention this season because the Patriots are doing an excellent job. His stock is really high right now.
“Longtime Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels is garnering head coaching consideration once again, with his work with rookie quarterback Mac Jones getting attention among owners mulling a potential coaching search,” La Canfora wrote.
“McDaniels has been one of Bill Belichick’s most trusted assistants for decades, and at various times Belichick has worked behind the scenes to try to keep him in the organization, including two years ago when then Patriots special teams coach Joe Judge was granted permission to interview with the Giants at a time when McDaniels was not. That, along with some situations in the past, had led some personnel executives and owners to wonder about McDaniels’ willingness to leave New England and Belichick’s willingness to let him go, but that is not expected to be an issue this year.”
Josh McDaniels will be garnering even more head coaching interest
McDaniels is working with an excellent offense this season. Will he consider leaving the Patriots in the offseason? Head coach Bill Belichick tried really hard to keep him around. McDaniels is a real professional and he is doing a wonderful job.
Where could McDaniels go? Las Vegas? Houston? Several sources have linked him to the Minnesota Vikings and Chicago Bears. New York makes sense, too.
Teams could really get the best of McDaniels. He will be a wonderful head coach one day. That’s why Belichick wants him on his team. McDaniels is a good coach and he shouldn’t go somewhere else. A lot of things can change in the meantime. Let’s see if McDaniels will make a move. He is working on his season and his team. That’s the only thing that matters.
