McDaniels not interested
January 8, 2014 - Mike McLain
In a move that can be classified as not a surprise, New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels has withdrawn his name as a candidate to coach the Cleveland Browns.
McDaniels interviewed for the opening last Saturday. He's currently helping in preparations for the Patriots' playoff game against the Indianapolis Colts.
McDaniels was widely believed to be one of the leading candidates. He had a 28-game run as coach of the Denver Broncos in 2009 and part of the 2010 season.
In a recent interview with The Tribune Chronicle, McDaniels' father Thom said that Josh has the best job in the NFL. Thom noted how well Josh is paid well, adding that he gets to work with Patriots coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady.
Josh has to be careful in making a choice. Having had one previous head-coaching opportunity, he might not get another one if he were to fail with the Browns.
In the end, he might have weighed the unstable situation in Cleveland against the assurance that he will get other opportunities that could be much better.
Last week the Browns interviewed Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn and Todd Bowles, defensive coordinator for the Arizona Cardinals. Green Bay Packers offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo wass interviewed Wednesday.
At this time McAdoo might have the upper simply because he works on the offensive side of the ball. It's believed the Browns want an offensive-minded coach that will be capable of tutoring the rookie quarterback that's likely to be selected in the NFL draft.
