Indianapolis Colts Hire New Head Coach

Indianapolis Colts Hire New Head Coach

The report itself comes as no real surprise, save for some last-minute drama on Sunday where PFT hinted that McDaniels might be weighing staying in New England. The Colts even interviewed former Chiefs offensive coordinator Matt Nagy, but the Chicago Bears struck a deal early with him-and Nagy reportedly liked the idea of coaching Mitchell Trubisky anyway.

McDaniels won five Super Bowl rings with New England and went 11-17 as Denver's head coach in 2009 and 2010.

Sports Illustrated's Peter King reported that during the week before the Super Bowl, McDaniels took a wrong turn out of his hotel and ended up inside the Mall of America. Finding a franchise quarterback in the National Football League is arguably the most hard thing to do.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The Indianapolis Colts have hired Josh McDaniels as their coach.

The Colts need a head coach and the Patriots need clarity, and neither side has it officially.

The Colts likely want that same success with Andrew Luck, who was sidelined with a shoulder injury for the entire 2017 season.

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.

This basically confirms Belichick will be back coaching next season, and now the team needs to find a new offensive coordinator. It was built by Bill Belichick: Mike Vrabel of the Titans played under the Patriots coach, McDaniels (Colts) and Bill O'Brien (Texans) were both offensive coordinators for New England and Belichick gave a glowing recommendation for the Jaguars to hire Doug Marrone.

However, Rob Gronkowski, the Patriots' all-world tight end, virtually confirmed McDaniels' pending departure.
