Josh McDaniels excels at adapting offense to attack opponent's weakness

Josh McDaniels excels at adapting offense to attack opponent's weakness

COLTS have appointed New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels as their new head coach.

McDaniels is supposed to be departing Bill Belichick's staff for the head coaching gig with the Indianapolis Colts.

McDaniels rehabilitated his career (after a bad season as St. Louis Rams offensive coordinator, which everyone has forgotten by now) back with the New England Patriots. Defensive coordinator Matt Patricia was left answering questions on why his unit couldn't stop Eagles, who gained 538 in the 41-33 victory.

The 41-year-old McDaniels goes from guiding Tom Brady and the high-octane Patriots to a team that struggled mightily without quarterback Andrew Luck, who missed all of last season while recovering from right shoulder surgery in January 2017.

This is McDaniels' second head coaching position, and it's an intriguing one.

McDaniels was hired to coach the Denver Broncos in 2009, but was sacked mid-way through the 2010 season after accumulating an 11-17 record.

In fact, the company said that the Crash Bandicoot trilogy was the "No. 1 top selling remastered collection in PS4 history". Rumor has it that Activision might launch a new game from the series Crash Bandicoot sometime in 2019.

The Colts announced McDaniels' introductory news conference will take place Wednesday. He was sacked in December 2010 after the underachieving and splintered Broncos posted an 11-17 record on his watch. He's won five Super Bowls with the Patriots, with the last two being as their offensive coordinator.

The Patriots will host McDaniels' Colts at Gillette Stadium.

McDaniels also was 11-17 as head coach of the Broncos from 2009-10.

McDaniels began his National Football League coaching career as a personnel assistant for the Patriots in 2001.

"I'm definitely going to look at my future for sure", Gronkowski told reporters.

"Sometimes", he said in the days leading up to Super Bowl LII, "I think failure is a great teacher". Patricia has been in the running for the post for several weeks but the move could not be made official until after the Patriots' Super Bowl defeat.
