McDaniels Agent Cut's Ties With Client After Criticizing Colts Decision

10 February 2018

"I'm speechless", former Colts receiver Reggie Wayne told NFL Network.

McDaniels was a key figure for the Patriots under head coach Bill Belichick, whose team fell to a 41-33 defeat to the Philadelphia Eagles in Sunday's Super Bowl.

When the Giants officially hired Shurmur, general manager Dave Gettleman went out of his way to stress - numerous times - that Shurmur is an "adult" and that "I really believe the head coach job for the NY football Giants is a job for an adult".

"Say hello to the next head coach of the New England Patriots: Josh McDaniels", the Herald's Karen Guregian wrote.

McDaniels, however, found himself in the midst of an impromptu interview after an NBC10 Boston-area reporter knocked on the front door of his Westwood (Mass.) home.

He also admitted the Colts announced the hiring of McDaniels on Tuesday because of his confidence that the two sides had finalized their arrangement. Ultimately, the conversations with the Krafts and Belichick changed his mind, as it was new information for him to evaluate.

When asked by SEC Country if he can envision McDaniels taking over for Patriots coach Bill Belichick one day, Tebow responded that McDaniels "has a chance to be a really good head coach in the future".

A source told ESPN's Dan Graziano that LaMonte was stunned Tuesday when McDaniels informed him that he would not accept the Colts job and instead would stay with the Patriots.

Another reason that Josh McDaniels helped the Colts is that he isn't proven outside New England. It figures to be the newest chapter in a revamped rivalry that just might burn for many years to come.

McDaniels is now likely to be the coach-in-waiting. Nearly everyone they interviewed prior to settling on McDaniels has landed a head coaching job elsewhere or withdrawn their name to stay at a college job, but there are still some appealing candidates out there for the Colts to choose from at this late stage.

Schefter reported Kraft added value to the offensive coordinator's contract to help convince him to stay in New England.

The stunning turn of events not only puts the Colts behind the eight-ball as far as head coaching candidates but the team has already hired assistant coaches and coordinators for McDaniels' staff. You're the head coach.

Turns out one of the things he might have learned from Belichick is this: It's perfectly fine to accept an National Football League head coaching job and then un-accept it. Belichick did it. Bill Parcells, Belichick's mentor, did it twice.
