Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels announced the book is closed Josh McDaniels on head coaching interviews for 2019.
McDaniels’ only known interview was with the Packers, who decided to hire ex-Titans OC Matt LaFleur to be their head coach. With that job no longer available, it looks like McDaniels will be back in New England for another season. It will be his eighth year in a row and 11th overall running the Patriots’ offense. This fits into what may be a plan to have McDaniels in place to take over the head coaching poition when Bill Belichick eventually retires.
McDaniels stuck it to the Indianapolis Colts last season after he accepted the head coaching position only to resign hours later and return to New England.
"The book is closed. It's always a humbling experience to have an opportunity. … I'll be here moving forward. …I've said before, I think I have one of the best jobs in the world." – Josh McDaniels, to @PhilAPerry, on if he anticipates interviewing for any other jobs this year
