Clearly, LaFleur's offensive philosophies merged with a Packers front office well aware that someone on staff needs to provide Aaron Rodgers with a modern offense.

McDaniels has told teams that he is no longer available for interviews and that he plans to remain in New England for the 2019 season.

Speaking on a conference call Tuesday morning, the Patriots coordinator confirmed he will be back with the team next season.

McDaniels reportedly was interested in becoming the Cleveland Browns' next head coach, but he said Tuesday he's had no contact with that organization.


McDaniels was unsure if his decision to pull out of the Colts job affected his job prospects nearly a year later.

The Colts ultimately went with former Philadelphia Eagles' offensive coordinator Frank Reich, who has led Indianapolis to the divisional playoffs.

McDaniels said he is enjoying his role with New England, and hopes he's growing and will continue to grow in his current role.

Carlton: Yeah, I think there's a chance, depending on the situation. In November, Mahomes said that Kingsbury "has the work ethic and he has the mind and he has the innovativeness, I guess you would say - if that's a word - to be in this league". Dorsey's agent was also McDaniels' agent at the time, but made a decision to move on from the coach after the Colts drama. "I wish you the best of luck'".


He left the Patriots in 2009 to coach the Denver Broncos.

Kingsbury was head coach of the Texas Tech Red Raiders from 2013 to 2018, where he played collegiately. Shortly after accepting the Indianapolis Colts' position, he reversed course and made a decision to return to New England.

McDaniels was convinced to stay by Bill Belichick and Robert Kraft, though reportedly no assurances were given that McDaniels would succeed Belichick when he retired.

Josh McDaniels isn't going anywhere.


The Jets fired head coach Todd Bowles after finishing the season 4-12.
