For a former head coach who lasted less than two seasons while quickly and efficiently wrecking a perennial NFL contender, Josh McDaniels sure is a hot commodity.
After days of contract talks to take over as offensive coordinator for the St. Louis Rams, McDaniels is now reportedly negotiating for the same role with the Seattle Seahawks. Ironically, the Seahawks fired another former in-demand Denver Broncos coach, offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates, giving McDaniels the opportunity to interview.
By our count, that puts the reported teams who had interest in McDaniels at some point this offseason to four: Kansas City, Minnesota, St. Louis, and Seattle.
So despite his foul-ups in the personnel department, video department, and even on the field near the end, clearly McDaniels is still thought of very highly in NFL circles as a premiere offensive gameplanner and strategist. It makes sense; his record-breaking years as offensive coordinator for the New England Patriots are impossible to ignore.
Where do you think he will land Broncos Country, and how long will it be until he’s given another chance to lead an NFL team as head coach?
