Josh McDaniels' Patriots exit is increasingly awkward

Posted February 07, 2018

McDaniels will begin his second stint as a head coach.

Both hires have been expected for a while, but the National Football League required teams to wait and make the announcements official until the end of the Patriots season. Defensive coordinator Matt Patricia was left answering questions on why his unit couldn't stop Eagles, who gained 538 in the 41-33 victory.

There is a slight chance McDaniels might pull out of the running for the Colts job, which explains Pats receiver Danny Amendola's answer about losing his offensive coordinator.

"I'm incredibly honored and grateful to be named Head Coach of the Detroit Lions", Patricia said in a statement.

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

Josh McDaniels is hoping history stops repeating itself there. The main criticism aimed towards him is that he has benefited from coaching one of the greatest quarterbacks of all-time in Tom Brady, where a guy like Matt LaFleur is cutting his teeth with multiple chains of success.

The already-announced deal to bring in McDaniels as the replacement for Chuck Pagano was finally proclaimed by the Colts themselves on Tuesday, quieting rumors that he would renege on the agreement to remain in New England as a potential successor to Patriots head coach Bill Belichick.

You can't write about the Colts hire without mentioning Belichick's status with the Patriots either. While there are some concerns about Luck's health, McDaniels must have confidence that he will be ready for next season.

The conspiracy theory was that if Belichick is leaving the Patriots, McDaniels may want the job. For a multitude of reasons, Super Bowl LII is a historic game.

And while the Colts had to wait more than five weeks to name McDaniels, it very well could end up being worth the wait for them. In fact, the Patriots will get a full load of former Pats, as New England will play the Titans, Colts and Lions next year.
