Report: Belichick to Mentor McDaniels to Be Head Coach


More and more details are coming out on why former Indianapolis head coaching candidate Josh McDaniels decided to stay in New England.

ESPN writer Mike Reiss took fans inside what happened in the meeting between Robert Kraft, Jonathan Kraft, Bill Belichick and McDaniels and what was said between everyone.

“There were two things I’m told that really made Josh McDaniels shift here. No. 1, Bill Belichick said to him, ‘I want you to be by my side. I am going to open my world to you. Show you how I view roster building, how I look at financials and the salary cap.’ To McDaniels, who is 41 years old, the chance to be with Belichick, arguably the greatest coach of all-time, 65 years old, to have that opportunity was viewed as to be extremely valuable to him.”

Another factor which was brought up was the offensive coordinator’s family and how the Patriots would secure him longterm which would give his kids a chance to finish school.

“The second part of this that appealed to Josh McDaniels was when the Patriots sort of sold him on the idea that his kids, who are 12, 10, 6 and 3, would have stability because they were willing to make a long-term commitment to him that in this coaching profession.”


But the important thing here is this, McDaniels will not be here on a year to year basis. He passed up on the opportunity to coach again as he knows that his time to coach the Patriots is most likely coming soon.

Belichick wants the franchise to be successful when he departs, and the 41-year old longtime employee of the Patriots is most likely who he wants to take the reins to keep the machine going.
