According to Schefter, Patriots owner Robert Kraft began talking with Josh McDaniels and ultimately wound up sweetening his contract, helping to entice him to remain in New England, per sources. Bill Belichick has his offensive coordinator’s back.
Colts probably gonna hang a banner that says, “Almost had a Patriots coach”. I now cannot stop laughing at this tweet👇🏼
We are excited to welcome Josh McDaniels, who has agreed to terms as our new head coach!
