For the last several years, Josh McDaniels has been one of the names most mentioned when it comes to head-coaching openings across the NFL.

And this year is no different with the Patriots offensive coordinator getting some buzz with potential openings, leading with the Chargers if Anthony Lynn is let go after the season.

So, where does McDaniels stand? Does he want to be a head coach again?

“Absolutely. I definitely want to do that,” he said via conference call Tuesday morning. “I’d love to have that opportunity if it presents itself.”

McDaniels led the Broncos in 2009 and half of 2010 and then accepted the Colts' head-coaching job in 2018 before ultimately deciding a few days later to remain in New England.

Obviously, it hasn't been a great year for the Patriots offense as it currently is 28th in points scored, averaging 19.9 points per game.

So far, the Texans, Falcons and Lions are the only jobs available, but there will likely be more coming next week following the season.
