    I wonder if they promised him he'd be Belichick's successor. That has to be part of the deal.

    Would have to be no? otherwise he will never get another offer to be a HC one would think or at a minimum teams would be very Leary. Not sure exactly when that will happen but..

    This story can only end one way, Jeff Fisher as the new Colts HC.

    Yeah there's no way he's passing up a HC job to stay an OC if that wasn't promised to him.

    Maybe he realized that riding the Brady gravy train to Super Bowl after Super Bowl is actually a much less stressful and rewarding gig than toiling away as a head coach again for a directionless/talent deprived squad with a badly damaged franchise QB.

    Lots of speculation he was promised the Pats job eventually. Also possible he just hasn’t matured since Denver. He was really flaky there

    He's still flaky. You accept a job then turn it down. What a punk.

    This to me signals that Belichick only has one more year in NE before retiring, that’s if he doesn’t announce his retirement tomorrow. McDaniels just torches his prospects of becoming a HC anywhere else with this bush league move. He wouldn’t do that to wait around several more years to become a HC again. He will be HC of NE in 2018 or 2019.

    The Colts must be royally pissed. They might end up with one of the Eagles coaches now... DeFillipo or Frank Reich.

    2018 will be Belichick’s swan song. Hallelujah!

    I think BB stays - at least next year - otherwise they would have just announced McDaniels as HC.

    Official statement from the Colts

    INDIANAPOLIS — After agreeing to contract terms to become the Indianapolis Colts’ new head coach, New England Patriots assistant coach Josh McDaniels this evening informed us that he would not be joining our team. Although we are surprised and disappointed, we will resume our head coaching search immediately and find the right fit to lead our team and organization on and off the field.

    The scheduled press conference at Lucas Oil Stadium will not take place tomorrow. More information will be forthcoming.

    Reich might actually be a hell of a hire.

    So the Belichick era is nearing its end? Probably by 2019 McDaniels is the HC. Maybe he'll do such a terrible job he'll force Brady to retire.

    Maybe he found out Luck is in worse shape than he figured.

    Colts are a bad team even with Luck right now. That division is going to be tough so it's at least a two year project to get back to a competitive state. If Luck's health is questionable it could a tough road. Not exactly a desirable position for a pick of the litter coaching candidate.

    Never under estimate Bob Kraft's desire to screw with the Colts.

    Yup, I think Hyde was trying to put a little humor spin on the situation.

    This was 100% calculated, in my opinion. The Patriots had to allow certain assistant coaches to go to the Colts, which they did. Then they waited until after those assistant coaches signed contracts, and pulled this? lol

    They cleaned house of some staff members they weren't happy with, don't have to pay them, and stuck the Colts with a huge problem. Brilliant.

    Can someone answer a question for me...

    Why can't teams officially hire a coach that is still active in the postseason?

    They can interview them and get everything in place to the point that everyone knows they are leaving "job a" for "job b", like Matt Patricia leaving the Patriots for the Lions (and apparently Pistons as well!) or Dan Quinn leaving the Seahawks for the Falcons, but they can't make that hire official until that team has been eliminated from the play offs or wins/loses the Super Bowl. I just can't get my head around the logic of that setup and why teams can't make the hire official and get that contract signed there and then. I suppose it might be because these kind of deals can only happen when a team's season ends and that allows people out of their contracts to leave for promotions, but it still makes little sense to me to prevent teams from making hires official when everyone knows that a verbal agreement has been reached and that person is leaving. Maybe that wouldn't have prevented the Colts being shunned by McDaniels, but had he signed a contract when he verbally agreed to the job, it would have made it more difficult for him to change his mind like he did.

    I do really hope 2018 is Belichick's swan song, and McDaniels takes over for him.

    I am not afraid of McDaniels as a head coach. I think he has the mind for it, but I do not think he has the demeanor or temperament.

    Just one more reason to hate the Patriors. Hope that Karma finally gets that team while Belichick finally calls it quits then Mcdaniels takes over and fails even worse than he did in Denver. Would be poetic justice if the Patriots never play in another Super Bowl.

    Because you can't be employed by two teams at the same time as a coach or a player. That would be like saying Nick Foles could've sign with the Patriots the week prior to the Super Bowl even though he was still the Eagles starting qb. Now if the Patriots grant a coach a release from their contract than he's unemployed and would be free to sign with another team as soon as he wants.

    Other sports have precontract agreements. For example a soccer player in the last six months of their contract in England can sign and agree a contract with a team in Germany for example. That way it secures that player. It's not employment by two teams it's just they go from one team to the next when their current contract expires.

    Granted the NFL adopting such a method could cause issues like with expiring contracts signing with other teams, but if they just let the head coach candidates sign that precontract it secures them and prevents people backing out without that team's consent and agreement, and in turn a team like the Colts would get compensated for the Patriots last minute power play to keep their coach after he had given his word to the Colts that he was joining them.

    I was listening to an Indy station this morning on the way to work and they blamed the flu epidemic in Indiana on Josh McDaniels.

    They said he made everyone in Indiana sick! I LMAO, they set it up perfectly. I didn't think it was possible but they hate the Patriots even worse now.
