Could the Colts raid the Eagles for coaching talent?

Could the Colts raid the Eagles for coaching talent?

Dating back a few weeks, it looked like Josh McDaniels would be the next Indianapolis Colts head coach as soon as it could be announced officially.

As of this time, the defensive coordinator position remains vacant, but it is easy to imagine that McDaniels will have some type of say in the decision on who to go with. But the Bears might not be quite as stunned, as Adam L. Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times indicated Wednesday that Chicago had some doubts about McDaniels following his interview with the organization January 5.

Frazier, who specializes on the defensive side of the ball, is clearly a significant departure from the direction the Colts were initially planning to go with the offensive-minded coach in McDaniels. Instead, he chose to stay with in New England as the Patriots offensive coordinator. The team announced McDaniels would be joining them on Tuesday morning.

Obviously, we know that Robert Kraft "sweetened" the contract for McDaniels, but it would take a little more than that to convince him to stay.

After spending the entire postseason being called the next head coach of the Indianapolis Colts, whispers started to generate during their bye week before Super Bowl LII that McDaniels wouldn't leave.

"The rivalry is back on", the poised GM said as he walked away from the mic and headed back to his office to find a new football coach.

Josh McDaniels quickly wore out his welcome after becoming the Denver Broncos head coach in 2009.

On Wednesday, former Florida quarterback Tim Tebow weighed in on the decision by McDaniels, who selected Tebow as the 25th overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft when McDaniels coached the Denver Broncos. Later that day, McDaniels informed Ballard he was returning to New England as offensive coordinator. I want, and we want as an organization, a head coach that wants to be all in.

"If he's not (the Patriots' next coach), then that would've been the absolute dumbest move in the history of sports", Weis said on SiriusXM.

"We will not abandon them", Ballard said.

Judge, 36, has been with the Patriots since 2012, first serving as assistant special-teams coach under Scott O'Brien before taking over the top job in 2015. "There's a lot of good assistant coaches out there".

LaMonte expected the phone call from McDaniels to be a question about preparation for Wednesday's scheduled news conference in Indianapolis, the source told Graziano.
