Josh McDaniels Heading Back To New England, According To Report

Adam Schefter of ESPN.com  is reporting that St. Louis Rams offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels is likely to return to the New England Patriots to take on the same post in 2012.

According to Schefter, the Patriots are going to hire McDaniels immediately as an offensive assistant and that he will coach for the Patriots in this year’s playoffs. This is possible because the St. Louis Rams told McDaniels that if he wished to leave the team that they would release him from his obligations at any time.

After the playoffs, McDaniels is expected to be promoted to offensive coordinator as current Patriots coordinator Bill O’Brien has accepted the head coaching job at Penn State.

Wow, talk about crazy times. I can’t remember a coach from an eliminated team ever jumping ship during the playoffs to coach for a team still in the hunt. Leave it to the Patriots.

With McDaniels likely off the market, the Chiefs will be searching elsewhere for their new offensive coordinator. Still, you have to believe that should McDaniels repair his reputation in New England that he could be a potential head coaching candidate for the Chiefs when the Romeo Crennel era is through.
