Giants Head Coaching Job Decided; Josh McDaniels Could Stay in New England

New, comments

Well that's another job off the market. The New York Giants are promoting offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo to the head coaching position, taking the hottest job out of contention.

Head coaching spots are filling up. The Dolphins have hired former Broncos and Bears offensive coordinator Adam Gase. The Browns hired former Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson. The Buccaneers are closing in on promoting offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter to be the new head coach. Hell, even the 49ers front runners are former offensive-minded head coaches Mike Shanahan and Tom Coughlin.

You know which offensive coordinator has led the best offense in the league since he took over in 2012, and still isn't getting any real love as a potential head coach? Yeah, that's New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels.

The only other two jobs would be the Philadelphia Eagles or Tennessee Titans head coaching positions. The Eagles were trying to bring in Gase, McAdoo, and Jackson, so they're clearly looking for an offensive minded coach to take over, but it's the Titans that could still hold the inside lane for a possible McDaniels departure.

Former Patriots executive Jon Robinson is the leading candidate to become the general manager for the Titans, which could entice McDaniels.

Still, as the jobs fill up around the league, the odds are pointing to another season with Josh McDaniels and Matt Patricia as the Patriots coordinators.
