Josh McDaniels Rejoining New England Patriots, Out Of Consideration For Chiefs

Arrowhead Pride is following the very confusing journey of now departed St. Louis Rams offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, who had been retained even after every other member of fired coach Steve Spagnuolo was let go. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that McDaniels had been requested for an interview by the Chiefs, and then they reported the exact opposite - that McDaniels had only one request, and it wasn't Kansas City.

Now it seems McDaniels is likeliest to end up back at his old gig, as offensive coordinator for the New England Patriots, replacing Bill O'Brien, who took the head coaching job at Penn State. Multiple sources have indicated McDaniels has accepted an offer to return to the franchise he developed in.

It's unclear if McDaniels was even being considered as a head coach - a position he held briefly with the Denver Broncos - or if he was being sought after as a potential offensive coordinator for interim coach turned permanent Todd Haley replacement Romeo Crennel, who worked with McDaniels under the Bill Belichick tree in New England.
