Black Monday is upon us, and NFL coaches are dropping left and right. Leslie Frazier of the Vikings, Jim Schwartz of the Lions, Mike Shanahan of the Redskins, Rob Chudzinski of the Browns and Greg Schiano of the Bucs have all been relieved of their duties already.
Might a few of those teams come calling for Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels? We already know the Browns are "absolutely” interested in having McDaniels as a replacement, according to what a league source told Tom E. Curran.
Mary Cay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer is reporting that McDaniels will interview for the Browns job "soon."
Tom Brady gave his offensive coordinator the best possible recommendation on WEEI's Dennis and Callahan Show on Monday.
“Josh is the best offensive coach I could ever imagine," Brady said. "He’s so prepared, he’s so confident in what he does. He figures out a way every week to get us in the best position as players to win. I have so much respect for him and what he does for me, what he does for our team. He’s just a great coach. He’s got a lot of poise, got a lot of discipline. I hope he doesn’t go anywhere. I mean, I’d love for him to coach me the rest of my life. But that’s just the way it is. He’s one of my best friends, and I love having him.”
With a reference like that, and considering the source, McDaniels may have his choice of suitors.
