NFL Network: Colts expected to hire Josh McDaniels

After one season as the St. Louis Rams offensive coordinator following his tenure in Denver, McDaniels returned to New England, where he started his coaching career. But he is expected to make Eberflus his defensive coordinator when it becomes official.

McDaniels and Colts general manager Chris Ballard share the same agent and are said to have a good relationship.

McDaniels had offers from nearly every National Football League team looking for a head coach this offseason and he chose to work with Chris Ballard in Indianapolis.

The Colts are moving in on their target for the new head coach, according to a report from NFL Insider Ian Rapoport Josh McDaniels is expected to accept the head coaching offer any day now.

While these two rumors seem to be close to done deals, at least as close to done as rumors can be, right now all Patricia, McDaniels and the Patriots are exclusively focusing on is a trip to the Super Bowl in three weeks.

In the time since, at the advice of his father, McDaniels has maintained a file on his laptop. There was known interest between McDaniels and the Titans if they were to have a head coaching vacancy. After pairing Andrew Luck with the defensive-minded Pagano for the first five years of his career, the Colts are hoping that their uber-talented quarterback can blossom under the same ideas and concepts that Brady has received for much of the decade. But he's been waiting for the right opportunity, the right combination of quarterback and franchise stability.

So who exactly are these coaching candidates for the Colts to potentially become their newest coordinators? Per CBS' Jason La Canfora, ex-Raiders QBs coach Jake Peetz is the favorite to serve as McDaniels' offensive coordinator.

The Titans have finished 9-7 the last two years and lost to the Patriots in the divisional round of the playoffs, 35-14, on Saturday night.
