Former New England Patriots receiver Andrew Hawkins weighed in on Josh McDaniels’ reversal Tuesday of his decision not to take the Indianapolis Colts head coach position.
And he said exactly what everyone was thinking. His decision to stay seems to mean he’s the head coach-in-waiting with Bill Belichick’s contract expiring after 2018.
Despite the Colts’announcementt on Tuesday morning that McDaniels was joining them, the Patriots offensive coordinator will stay in his current role.
Patriots owner Robert Kraft sweetened McDaniels’ deal to make sure he stayed, which likely means Kraft wants insurance for Belichick’s departure — this year, next year or sometime after. That also likely means Kraft is interested in McDaniels being his next head coach.
