Could a college coach be headed to Indianapolis?
The NFL world was set on fire last night by Josh McDaniels. The Patriots’ offensive coordinator accepted a position as the new head coach of the Indianapolis Colts, taking over for the ousted Chuck Pagano.
Just hours after the Colts’ social media pages announced McDaniels as the team’s head coach, the Pats OC reneged his decision to become a head coach for the second time. According to a report from Adam Schefter, McDaniels decided to stay with New England.
McDaniels was seeking his second head coaching gig after an unsuccessful stint with the Denver Broncos. It seems likely now that he’ll become the next head coach of New England after Bill Belichick decides to hang it up.
In the meantime, Indianapolis must go back to the drawing board. The colts interviewed Matt Nagy, Mike Vrabel, and McDaniels as potential coaches.
Nagy is now the head coach of the Chicago Bears, while Vrabel is in charge of the Tennessee Titans. Are there any other candidates left?
According to Adam Schefter, a former candidate who interviewed for the job is still on the table. Schefter went on SportsCenter and mentioned the Colts could go after Baylor head coach Matt Rhule.
It’s interesting to note that today is National Signing Day for high school football recruits. Will this have an impact on recruiting?
Adam Schefter just said on SportsCenter that the Colts could again look at Baylor HC Matt Rhule, who previously interviewed for the job.

Rhule turned down the Colts early in the process, but his name keeps popping up. Will he leave for the NFL after all?
