It is all the way down to the Giants, Colts and Patriots for Josh McDaniels.
The Chicago Bears, one of many three groups who interviewed the New England offensive coordinator final weekend for a head teaching emptiness, have named Chiefs offensive coordinator Matt Nagy as their new head coach, the crew introduced on Monday.
Nagy replaces the fired John Fox, getting the job regardless of his Kansas Metropolis offense scoring zero factors — and infrequently operating the ball — in choking away a 21-Three halftime result in lose to the Titans, 22-21, within the Wild Card playoff spherical.
McDaniels now should select between being the brand new head coach of the Giants and the Colts or staying in New England because the offensive coordinator — or maybe as Patriots head coach if Invoice Belichick pulls an influence play and bolts.
McDaniels stated of his takeaway from his interviews in a convention name Monday: “No thought, actually.”
The Patriots host the Tennessee Titans within the divisional spherical Saturday night time, so if he and the Giants select one another, they may have an settlement in place however the Giants couldn’t formally rent McDaniels till New England is eradicated.
The quarterback conditions will play a significant component. The Giants maintain the No. 2 total choose and have Eli Manning and Davis Webb, although Manning’s future with two years on his contract stays unsure.
The Colts have Andrew Luck and former Patriots QB Jacoby Brissett however Luck’s well being is a significant query mark and will make the choice for McDaniels relying on what Indianapolis can assure or share.
