Robert Kraft says he's 'flattered' that teams are pursuing Josh McDaniels

After a loss to the Cardinals dropped the Green Bay Packers to 4-7-1 on the season, the team controversially fired head coach Mike McCarthy.

"Again, I'm not going to really comment on the tweet", Philbin said.

Despite the New England Patriots offensive coordinator burning some bridges after backing out on a deal to join the Indianapolis Colts previous year, it hasn't even taken one hiring cycle for McDaniels' name to resurface as a candidate. "I don't really pay too much attention to it". He's open to being a head coach again.


The Green Bay Packers and Cleveland Browns will be attractive job openings this National Football League offseason, as one has Aaron Rodgers, and the other has a young and upcoming rebuilding roster and Baker Mayfield in place.

But you always want to be able to trust your head coach, and after what went down with the Colts, the only people that should trust McDaniels are Belichick and Patriots owner Robert Kraft. "Again, I think it's important, as I said to the team, we've got to be professional, accountable, respectful and punctual".

But asked about these rumors on his weekly conference call on Tuesday, McDaniels said his focus is on the present and not the future. "We try to stay in the moment". "But again, I'm not anxious about that right now", he said earlier this week of possibly taking another head coaching gig.


"If that's in the cards for me, then that's great", McDaniels said.

The 42-year-old McDaniels has served as the Patriots' offensive coordinator since the 2012 season.
