    Josh McDaniels A Head Coach Next Year?

    Josh McDaniels could be closing in on his second chance as a head coach

    Posted by Mike Florio on December 9, 2012, 6:45 PM EST

    AP
    In his first stint as a head coach, things didn’t go very well for Josh McDaniels. Hired by the Broncos in 2009, he was fired during the 2010 season.

    At first, things were looking good for McDaniels, leading the team to a 6-0 start that included a fist-pumping win over his mentor, Bill Belichick.

    Unlike other Belichick pupils who went elsewhere and failed, McDaniels’ road led back to Foxboro, where he is serving as offensive coordinator a year after having that same job in St. Louis. Now, as the 2013 coaching carousel approaches, McDaniels’ name is bubbling back onto the list of potential head-coaching candidates.

    The first rumor that has landed on our radar screen links McDaniels to Cleveland. Coincidentally, that’s where Belichick ultimately failed as a first-time NFL head coach, before becoming regarded as one of the best ever in New England. As the rumor goes, McDaniels and G.M. Mike Lombardi would come to the Browns as a package deal.

    A native of nearby Canton, it’s unclear how McDaniels would be received by Browns fans. The local media already has been bristling at the notion that Lombardi could supplant G.M. Tom Heckert.

    And with plenty of coaching jobs expected to be available this season, McDaniels could be lured elsewhere. Perhaps he’d be interested in coaching up Cam Newton, if the Carolina job is open. Or perhaps McDaniels would be willing to work with likely front-office chiefs Jimmy Raye and John Spanos in San Diego, if that also means working with Philip Rivers.

    Jacksonville remains an intriguing possibility for McDaniels, given that he could then try to reunite with the quarterback he selected in the first round of the 2010 draft. (You know, the guy in the picture with McDaniels?)

    Either way, McDaniels could soon be once again in demand as a head coach, which would make him one of the few members of the FFCA for whom NFL owners may clamor.

    how is he getting an opportunity already he ruined the broncos in a year and a half then nearly killed sam bradford and stunted his progression in his sophomore season. Why would a team consider hiring him?

    Because of the 2007 Patriots offense and this year's Patriots' offense, that's why.

    We see it all the time with coaches not doing well with one team and getting second and third chances with other teams.

    Well they're on pace to break their own record from 07, so I'd say they're considerably better this year than last year

    True enough, but someone will give him credit for his position within the organization. IMO, I don't think he's ready to be a HC yet.

    Not true at all. The Pats have had a ton of injuries on offense this season but have been much more efficient anyway. The running game hasn't been this good in a long time, and the offense is not one-dimensional any longer. The Pats offense struggled against elite defenses last season, but has been much more effective against strong defenses this season. Even in the Seahawks game we were moving the ball at will, we just had redzone issues that have been solved since then.

    As for McDaniels, I think he will wait for Belichick to retire and then take over. McDaniels will be patient and wait for the right opportunity, and it doesn't get much better than being the head coach of a first class franchise like the Patriots.

    If he wasn't given so much power rather than just sticking to coaching, I think there's a decent chance he's still in Denver. Definitely potential, but needed to grow up some.

    On a side note, how hilarious (although unlikely) would it be if he ended up as Chicago's HC.

    That's what I was thinking. Too much control too early in his career.

    I doubt it would happen. But that would be very, very nice.

    If he could just build with what he has instead of being a prick and trying to bring in all his own guys right away, he could be ok. He just needs to check his ego

    Isn't that what every new coach tries to do? Bring in guys that fit his system?

    Yes, but most do it in a less stupid way. Trying to trade a franchise quarterback away right when you get to a team is not a great way to get the players on your side.

    He could have easily kept Cutler, Marshall, and even Peyton Hillis (he looked awesome before he went to Cleveland) and would have been set offensively. Instead he got rid of tons of talent and turned them into one of the worst teams in the league. There's a difference between bringing in your own guys and gutting an organization of elite talent

    First, Lombardi and Saban are a package deal. Now, it's Lombardi and McDaniels? How exactly are Lombardi and McDaniels a package deal? I don't think they have any prior connections.

    On McDaniels getting another HC job, I think it will happen. He's an incredible offensive mind who is still really young. McD just shouldn't have as much influence on personnel decisions as he did in Denver, which was where he really failed.
