Cardinals to hire Kliff Kingsbury as head coach

Packers coaching search Three things to know about Josh McDaniels

A long checklist of needs awaits whomever the new head coach shall be, which makes the hiring of an offensive coordinator just as important for the Jets.

Kingsbury recently accepted a position as offensive coordinator for the University of Southern California, but the National Football League interests forced him to abandon that position in order to interview and weigh his options.

"I'm grateful for the opportunity I had, but obviously more importantly grateful for the opportunity I have here".

"The book is closed", as McDaniels said, per Henry McKenna of Patriots Wire.

He did interview for the Green Bay Packers job, but they are reported to have hired Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur as the replacement for Mike McCarthy.

"The Chargers' defense in general", said McDaniels, "is the best group we've played all year".

An interesting side note to this is that, per Phil Perry of NBC Sports Boston, McDaniels didn't get a lot of interest from the eight teams looking to fill head coaching vacancies.

Tune in to Sunday's Patriots-Chargers divisional round clash on WBZ-TV - the flagship station of the New England Patriots! If the Colts and Patriots both win in the second round, McDaniels and New England will take on Reich and Indianapolis in the AFC Championship Game. The Pats were fourth in points per game (27.3) this season.

In addition, the Patriots signed defensive back A.J. Howard and offensive lineman Dan Skipper to the practice squad. Time will tell if he is as interested in the Jets as they are in him.

McDaniels was unsure if his decision to pull out of the Colts job affected his job prospects nearly a year later. "That was the final straw for me", Mayfield said.

One might say the young coach suffers from Don Coryell Syndrome. "I am grateful for the opportunity that I had, but obviously more importantly thankful for the opportunity that I have here".
