Josh McDaniels will never be head coach again! He'll win another ring with Bellichick next season.

 

Maybe the Browns were afraid he would change his mind and go back to New England after he was hired.

Yeah, that'd be terrible. 

 

The Browns may actually have been forced to hire a good coach in that case.

When he left straight back to Boston it was clear he wasn't taking the job. At least Stefanski has been in the mix before so we'll see. McDaniel reportedly wanted certain assistants to take the job who already committed elsewhere.

Gonna suck for McDaniels when Kraft doesn't actually name him Belichick's successor.

It’s probably going to either be him or or Steve Belichick. 
 

Because nepotism always works, right?

John Harbaugh was at least with the team he took over for a season.  Judge is new to the current roster.

 

Was he?  Wasn't he the Eagles ST coach for a while, and then their secondary coach prior to getting the Baltimore HC job?

 

The story here was that he was a solid HC candidate but teams were reluctant to hire anyone that hadn't at least been a position coach so Andy Reid did him a solid and put him there for a year.

Yeah Harbaugh was the Eagles ST/secondary coach in 2007 and then was hired by the Ravens in 2008.

"play every play like it has a history and a life of its own" is a bad CCSLC post that gets turned into an avatar subtitle. Holy moly.

According to some writers, McDaniel didn't like the idea of having to have a sit down with the Haslem's every Monday to go over what happened the day prior. According to one writer it would be a multiple hour visit. There were also reports that the owner wanted to see the play call sheet the Friday prior to games and that the coach would have to accept that an analytics person would be involved in meetings.

Makes sense.  The fact that the main analytics guy is a former MLB General Manager is laughable though.  What the hell does Paul DePodesta know about football?

Another future Hall of Famer calls it quits. 

 

That man gave the Chiefs fits for so many years. Still, an amazing player who should be in Canton very soon.

What does a 'passing game coordinator' even do that the OC wouldn't?

First off, Steve Ensminger, has been playcalling for three decades, but really wasn't steeped in RPO, thus they got Brady.  Brady also split time with the WR group too.

 

I think he left for the NFL for one big reason: He really didn't want to recruit and it's 24/7 football when coaching in the NFL.  This was the first year he had to recruit players because while at Penn State, NCAA rules prohibit GAs to do it at the FBS level.  I think he realized that he really wasn't cut out for that.

 

Meanwhile he new team just had Luke Kuechly retired.

I’m shocked at the Kuechly news but I’ve seen it a lot recently so it brings the surprise level down a bit
