Colts plan to interview Leslie Frazier for head coaching job

Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels

Josh McDaniels chose to stay in New England on Tuesday despite reaching an agreement with the Indianapolis Colts to be their next head coach.

Special teams coordinator Joe Judge, who reportedly was supposed to join Indianapolis if McDaniels took the Colts' head-coaching job, is finalizing a deal with the Patriots to return for the 2018 season, according to ESPN. Exactly 24 hours after announcing McDaniels' hiring on the team's Twitter account and roughly 16 hours after he called back to tell Ballard he was out, the search begins anew for the Colts.

Ballard said on Wednesday that the Colts will be moving on from their original candidates, meaning former Seattle defensive assistant Kris Richard and Baylor head coach Matt Rhule are no longer options. Two coaches who had been on his list - Texans defensive coordinator Mike Vrabel and Carolina defensive coordinator Steve Wilks - were hired by other teams.

Luck, who missed all of last season after having surgery in January 2017, spent about six weeks in the Netherlands late past year rehabbing his shoulder after the Colts shut him down in the middle of October. I wish you the best of luck'.

There's been speculation that McDaniels is now being groomed to eventually replace Belichick as the Patriots' head coach.

On Wednesday, though, he attempted to alleviate lingering concerns about Luck while acknowledging the franchise quarterback still hasn't thrown a football since returning from Europe late a year ago. Meaning anyone that comes in now as head coach won't have complete freedom to assemble their own staff. "They're good coaches. They're good people". And you can see the impact of when he has been in New England and the success they've had versus when he was not there. He has not picked up a football, but he is throwing balls, working on arm speed. I said, 'OK and we're going to move forward.

Resume: NFL career spans more than three decades as a player, head coach and assistant coach. Things changed when McDaniels made a decision to go back to New England, leaving the Colts with their trousers down. Whether McDaniels backed out because of this uncertainty or a promise that he would eventually succeed Bill Belichick in New England, or a combination of both, is unknown.

Over the past few weeks, Ballard said he had no indication from McDaniels that there were any reservations about coming to Indianapolis. "That's what we want to be".
