Early this morning, the Colts welcomed longtime New England offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels into the organization as their next head coach. Despite some shaky rumors or “chatter,” about McDaniels possibly backing out from their deal, the Colts officially announced what most believed would happen for weeks. The former Denver Broncos head coach is coming off a masterful 2017 season where the Patriots ranked as one of the best offenses in football yet again. Also, McDaniels called a nearly flawless game in the Super Bowl with Tom Brady throwing for over 500 yards and three touchdowns. It is about time that Andrew Luck gets an offensive mind on his level, McDaniels is one of the greatest offensive coordinators in recent memory, and should challenge Luck and the offense to reach new levels.
The jury is still out on the Belichick protégé if he can lead and develop a team, but either way, he should be an upgrade over the last regime. It’s expected that McDaniels will bring Dallas Cowboys linebacker coach and passing coordinator Matt Eberflus as his defensive coordinator, Patriots special teams coach Joe Judge to the same position in Indy, but the offensive coordinator spot is a bit more muddled. Oakland Raiders quarterback coach Jake Peetz was initially reported to become the new Colts offensive coordinator, but recent reports point to Indy targeting former Seattle Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell to join McDaniels as his offensive coordinator, most likely this will be cleared up shortly. The Colts plan to officially introduce their new head coach in a press conference tomorrow.
