Patriots OC Josh McDaniels interviewed for Eagles head coach
Jan 18 2021
However, no specific names were given in the report.
As for McDaniels, he will meet with Jeffrey Lurie on Sunday.
According to Wulf, McDaniels has already "begun recruiting the coaching staff he would hope to bring with him to Philadelphia if hired". His tenure proved to be short, lasting less than two seasons with an 11-17 record. He was the Rams offensive coordinator in 2011, but he returned to New England in 2012. There's a lot of good candidates out there.
Given how hard it can be to extricate his success from Brady, McDaniels might not necessarily be the most inspiring candidate, but it would be interesting to see how he handled his second chance at a head coaching job more than a decade after his first.
"I definitely want to do that", he said at the end of December.
McDaniels left the Patriots in 2009 to take the head coaching job with the Broncos, starting off with a 6-0 record, including an overtime win over his former team, but was sacked after a 3-9 start to the 2010 season.
In February 2018, McDaniels garnered interest from several teams prior to agreeing to terms to replace Chuck Pagano as head coach of the Indianapolis Colts. The Eagles hired Doug Pederson in 2016, from Reid's staff and could do the same with Bieniemy.
