Patriots offensive coordinator McDaniels announced as new Colts head coach

It's official: Josh McDaniels is the new head coach of the Indianapolis Colts. He was sacked during his second year with the Denver Broncos, with whom he posted an 11-17 mark during the 2009-10 seasons.

McDaniels, 33 at the time, admitted he handled that situation poorly. McDaniels didn't do any favors when he wouldn't speak about it Sunday night, but on Tuesday morning the Colts announced he is their new head coach.

For Patricia, this will be his first chance to be a head coach in the NFL.

McDaniels began his National Football League coaching career as a personnel assistant for the Patriots in 2001. Brady threw three touchdown passes and no interceptions and the Patriots didn't punt a single time. As for the Patriots, they have the tough take of replacing two coordinators. Brady is the trigger man here, but McDaniels has helped to orchestrate some incredible offenses while in New England.

Even though Luck missed the entire 2017 season, he is still one of the best young quarterbacks in the NFL.

A lot of McDaniels' success relies on what the future holds for Andrew Luck.

Now, the AFC South becomes the most interesting division to watch this offseason.

McDaniels rehabilitated his career (after a bad season as St. Louis Rams offensive coordinator, which everyone has forgotten by now) back with the New England Patriots.

You can't write about the Colts hire without mentioning Belichick's status with the Patriots either. He's been on two Super Bowl champion coaching staffs as the assistant offensive line coach on the Giants' 2007 team and the offensive line coach on the Patriots' 2014 team.

However, Rob Gronkowski, the Patriots' all-world tight end, virtually confirmed McDaniels' pending departure. For a multitude of reasons, Super Bowl LII is a historic game.
