Colts Hire Patriots Offensive Coordinator Josh McDaniels As Head Coach

Former Seahawks coordinator Darrell Bevell drawing interest from Colts

Offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels led a typical Patriots offensive showcase Sunday night, as New England gained 613 yards against Philadelphia.

In fact, Mark Maske of the Washington Post reported that the deal is nearing its completion.

McDaniels is heavily rumored to take over as head coach of the Indianapolis Colts and Patricia is supposed leave for the Lions gig.

It isn't clear when the team will officially name McDaniels the new head coach but it is expected to be soon, even as early as Tuesday, per FOX 59 and CBS4's Mike Chappell.

For weeks now, McDaniels has been mentioned in conjunction with the Colts head coach opening, nearly immediately after Chuck Pagano was relieved from the role after six years on the sidelines for Jim Irsay's team.

And after taking his time to find the right job, he made a decision to become the Indianapolis Colts' next head coach.

The New England Patriots' coaching staff shakeup won't stop with its two coordinators.

The Colts announced McDaniels' introductory news conference will take place Wednesday. Their offense ranked in the top-10 every year with the exception of the 2014 season, in which the Patriots still wound up winning Super Bowl 49. Star quarterback Andrew Luck didn't play all season, due to a nagging shoulder injury. He is also a former offensive coordinator for the St. Louis Rams and former head coach of the Denver Broncos.

"I'm not going to talk about that tonight", McDaniels snapped at reporters.

They have already interviewed for the vacancies and spent the week leading to the Super Bowl shrugging off questions about the future.

Instead McDaniels has to worry about playing the Pats: the Colts and Pats are scheduled to play a game (date/time TBD) at Gillette Stadium next season. Patriots head coach Bill Belichick isn't known for bringing in outside help when hiring for such positions.
