The New England Patriots offensive coordinator flirted with leaving in 2017, and is sure to leave come 2018. Here are the five potential landing spots for him in 2018.
The New England Patriots most sought after coordinator Josh McDaniels planned to leave the Patriots in 2017 to become the head coach of one of the six teams who fired theirs. The positions quickly filled up as it was later explained by McDaniels that he wanted to find the perfect situation. He boosted his resume with another Super Bowl win, and solidified himself as a top head coaching candidate again.
McDaniels had to deal with the four-game suspension of Tom Brady to start the season, and went 3-1 with Jimmy Garoppolo and Jacoby Brissett at quarterback. All of this boosted his resume, and the Patriots returned to full potential with Brady at quarterback. With the Patriots boasting a top 5 offense through the past 4 years under McDaniels, it’s hard not to consider him a viable candidate for any job.
Although he had a failed attempt in Denver nearly 6 years ago, McDaniels has had the chance to grow. He’s flourished under 4 more years with Bill Belichick, and it’s paid off. McDaniels shows ability to adapt to personnel decisions on offense and create a lethal attack week to week. More than enough times in the past 4 seasons the Patriots have faced adversity on offense and conquered.
Here are the 5 landing spots for Josh McDaniels in 2018.
