It's easy for Patriots fans to revel in the genius of Bill Belichick, however we already knew Belichick was a genius. Josh McDaniels is the guy who truly made a case for a promotion after going 3-0 with the quarterback combo of Garoppolo and Brissett.
Since we know that Belichick most likely is not leaving anytime soon, the promotion for McDaniels is going to end up being with another team.
Jason LaConfora, of CBS Sports, has reported that it is "virtually certain" that McDaniels will move on from the Patriots after this season. Two of the more popular landing spots are said to be the Detroit Lions and the Tennessee Titans. McDaniels would be replacing Jim Caldwell in Detroit or Mike Mularkey in Tennessee.
Since McDaniels has taken over the offense in 2012, the Patriots have a 48-16 record and have outscored opponents 2,015 to 1,342. In all 4 years with McDaniels as the offensive coordinator, the Patriots have not failed to reach the AFC Championship, winning the Super Bowl in the 2014 sesaon.
Although he was fired as the head coach of the Broncos, McDaniels has at the very least earned another shot at a head coaching gig.
