Colts officially hire McDaniels as head coach

Colts officially hire McDaniels as head coach

National Football League rules prohibited the Colts from making the hiring official until the Patriots' season ended. But there are whispers he might stay put in New England - especially with him and the Patriots dodging questions about his future following their 41-33 Super Bowl LII loss to the Eagles on Sunday night.

One of them was supposed to be who will take over for Josh McDaniels at offensive coordinator.

That time just may not be as a member of the Patriots' staff.

The Patriots lost in the Super Bowl, but it wasn't the offense's fault. The Colts could also use at least one more good wide receiver, some reinforcements for the offensive line, and an infusion of young talent into a defense that is likely staring down a scheme change into a 4-3 alignment. McDaniels helped Brady become the regular season MVP at the age of 40 and then Brady dominated on the biggest stage.

Amtrak Train Collided With Train, 2 Dead, 70 Injured
Just four days ago, a lorry driver was killed when his vehicle was hit by a train carrying lawmakers in Virginia . Richard Blumenthal of CT said the nation's railroads must be made safer, declaring, "Business as usual must end".

McDaniels will no longer have Tom Brady, arguably the NFL's greatest quarterback, at his disposal, but one thing the new Colts coach has proven is that he has the ability to adapt to different situations.

Indianapolis will be McDaniels' second foray as head coach. 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. Obviously, those rumors proved to be false with the Colts announcing his hiring on Tuesday. While there are some concerns about Luck's health, McDaniels must have confidence that he will be ready for next season. He was part of all five of New England's Super Bowl titles since 2001.

The conspiracy theory was that if Belichick is leaving the Patriots, McDaniels may want the job. Clearly that's not the case. At the end of the day, the Colts were the winners of the McDaniels sweepstakes.
