Patriots OC Josh McDaniels Withdraws from Colts Head Coach position

FOXBOROUGH MA- JANUARY 13 Offensive Coordinator Josh Mc Daniels of the New England Patriots reacts after winning the AFC Divisional Playoff game against the Tennessee Titans at Gillette Stadium

FOXBOROUGH MA- JANUARY 13 Offensive Coordinator Josh Mc Daniels of the New England Patriots reacts after winning the AFC Divisional Playoff game against the Tennessee Titans at Gillette Stadium

Matt Eberflus who was the ex-assistant head coach for the Dallas Cowboys was hired to be the defensive coordinator while Mike Phair who served as the ex-defensive line coach for IL was hired to serve as the defensive line coach.

For about eight hours, that was true, too.

"I mean, it's just unbelievable", said Charlie Weis, who moved on from being Patriots OC in 2004 to become Notre Dame's head coach in 2005.

According to reports this week, Patriots owner Robert Kraft met with him and may have convinced him that he would be in line to succeed Bill Belichick as head coach one day.

The Patriots gave McDaniels an offer he couldn't refuse.

"The rivalry is back on", Ballard said.

Football wise, the Patriots have been the Colts' daddy for almost a decade now. Brady's Patriots came out on top more often than not while Manning was in Indy, but the series produced plenty of memorable moments.

After agreeing to be the Colts' head coach, even hiring other assistants away from National Football League teams behind the scenes, McDaniels opted to return to the Patriots.

The rivalry hit peak levels of hatred during Deflategate, a ball-deflating scandal that started during the AFC Championship Game for the 2014 season.

As the Patriots refocus on next season and Super Bowl 53, getting McDaniels back certainly makes them a better team. They had a plane going to pick you up to bring you to the press conference the next morning. "But in one city, he's endeared himself".

The Colts are obviously at a very critical juncture right now with their franchise, and with Andrew Luck's health being a major question mark.

Pagano was sacked on 31 December after the team finished 4-12 in a season without injured quarterback Andrew Luck. McDaniels has proven himself to be a cheater (both in Denver and New England), a liar, and generally one of the least respectable coaches in the NFL.

Ballard understandably did not seem thrilled at the position the Colts found themselves in during the press conference but stressed that they would be fine in the long term.

Although he was hired on January 22, 1996, Tony Dungy told Ballard he was interviewed by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers four different times and that he didn't even finish hiring onto his coaching staff until March.
