McDaniels Backs Out of Colts Deal; Will Stay With New England


"After agreeing to contract terms to become the Indianapolis Colts' new head coach, New England Patriots assistant coach Josh McDaniels this evening informed us that he would not be joining our team, " the team said in a release.

Now, the Colts are in scramble mode with the NFL's off season schedule bearing down on them.

"I didn't want the explanation", Ballard said of the quick conversation.

Schefter continued: "But do you know what's going to be happening with that franchise in a year or two or five - whenever Bill decides he's done coaching?" According to his report, Belichick offered to mentor McDaniels going forward. I told him, 'Les, I don't have this job yet; I can't in good faith tell you that.' He said, 'Well, coach, it's been on the radio for an hour.

The idea of McDaniels coaching quarterback Andrew Luck next season was exciting for Colts' fans and intriguing for the Texans, Tennessee and Jacksonville - division opponents who would have played them twice a season.

Gettleman was referring to Shurmur and never mentioned anyone else by name, but after what McDaniels pulled this week, it is doubtful, when describing him, "adult" is the first word that comes to mind.

And while it's one thing for folks unaffiliated with the Patriots to take shots at McDaniels, it's something else entirely when it comes from a former New England assistant.

Taking on these tasks were reportedly important to McDaniels and was viewed as possibly part of "a succession plan" on who takes Belichick's post in the future. Tom Brady years could be considered a rivalry. "I'd say the odds of that happening are nearly a hundred percent". Yet even knowing that, Weis still says he has trouble believing what McDaniels did.

The Colts were so confident that McDaniels would be their next coach that they announced they had agreed to a deal with him on Tuesday and had scheduled a news conference to introduce him on Wednesday afternoon. A day later, he announced his resignation to become head coach of the Patriots. After a brief stint with the St. Louis Rams, he returned as the Patriots offensive coordinator in 2012.

Belichick went on to great success as the Patriots' coach after New England was able to pry him out of his Jets contract by sending a first-round pick to NY.

By spurning the Colts after they waited 22 days to hire him, McDaniels leaves the reeling franchise as the only National Football League team without a coach.
