He then went out to coach other teams such as Denver Broncos and St. Louis Rams. The Rams had McDaniels for a contract of two years but later changed their mind allowing him to find a position elsewhere for 2012. It was then that the Patriots hired him in order to take the place of Bill O’Brien who was in charge of the quarterbacks and being offensive coordinator.
Now that he’s back with the Patriots, he shared that he intends to stay with them. This was reported by Albert Breer from NFL’s website. This was somewhat a controversial issue since rumors have spread saying that another team is vying to also have him on their team. However, McDaniel has been reported to share that he is not interested about uprooting his family or other job offers.He has been able to help produce great numbers for the New England Patriots such as them gaining 76 points more compared to other teams.
McDaniel’s father is Thom McDaniel’s who was awarded as USA Today High School Coach of the Year. As a high school player he was able to have some coaching under his father. During his high school years at Canton McKinley High School, he was eyed by Greg Debeljak when he was still in high school and recruited him. He then attended John Carrol University and continued to play football.
