Josh McDaniels reportedly will not be Eagles' next coach, which is a good thing for Patriots


Josh McDaniels is staying in New England.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Eagles are hiring Colts offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni as their new head coach.

The 39-year-old has coached in the NFL since 2009, spending time with the Chiefs and Chargers before the Colts.

While some didn't seem to have an issue with McDaniels potentially leaving the Patriots organization, this is a positive development for them. Losing McDaniels this offseason would have been a huge blow to the team, as there isn't a natural replacement both in house and outside the organization, and it already lost a valuable member in Nick Caserio.

While McDaniels' stock may not be as high as it once was coming off his first season without Tom Brady, he still is one of the best offensive coordinators in the game and is a valuable asset for the Patriots.

For him personally relating to becoming a head coach again, it could be frustrating to see Sirianni get hired over him considering his lack of experience and not really being a big name.

In next season's hiring cycle it seems like Brian Daboll and Eric Bieniemy will be at the top of the list, so McDaniels may not be as sought after as he once was.

The 44-year-old said at the end of this year he "absolutely" wants to be a head coach again.

Houston is now the only team left without a head coach and McDaniels has not be requested to interview as of now.
