After a two-week process of interviews and phone calls, the Indianapolis Colts have found their new head coach. Ian Rapoport has reported that the Colts have sealed the deal on Josh McDaniels. There cannot be any official announcement from either the Colts or the New England Patriots until the Patriots playoff run is over as it is in violation of the NFL rulebook.
This report comes just hours after concern in Indianapolis arose after the Tennessee Titans and head coach Mike Mularkey agreed to part ways this morning after their loss to the Patriots last week. There was known interest between McDaniels and the Titans if they were to have a head coaching vacancy.
McDaniels has served as the Patriots offensive coordinator since the 2012 season and has enjoyed two Super Bowl victories and appears to be well on his way to a third. He was also the Denver Broncos head coach from 2009 to 2010. He was knocked on a bit for underachieving, although he was only in his early thirties at the time. He has had many years to attain valuable knowledge and grow from one of the winningest coaches in NFL history.
Colts fans should be very excited to have an offensive mind back at the helm with Andrew Luck still in his prime.
