It didn’t take long for the Green Bay Packer’s head coaching vacancy to start generating possible head coaching buzz.
New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels could become the Packer’s new head coach, according to Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports. Several NFL assistants are even declining coaching jobs at the college level with the possibility of McDaniels at the helm of the Packers.
“A handful of NFL assistant coaches have indicated interest in joining a McDaniels-led coaching staff in Green Bay. … So much so that at least one has pulled his name from consideration for a college coordinator position. While such a development doesn’t guarantee mutual interest between the Packers and McDaniels, it is an indication the Patriots assistant is maintaining a list of staff candidates if he chooses to depart New England.”
Local Boston radio station 98.5 The Sports Hub tweeted that the coach is indeed showing intrigue towards the vacancy.

McDaniels has been the offensive coordinator for the Patriots since 2012—his second tenure at the position. He has also dipped his toe into the head coaching waters once before much to no avail with the Denver Broncos being fired by the team with an 11-17 overall record during his stint there.
