BOSTON (CBS) — How things change ever-so-quickly in the world of NFL coaching. On Sunday night, the Patriots were reportedly expecting offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels to take a job elsewhere. By Monday evening, that didn’t appear to be the case anymore.
That’s because the Green Bay Packers, one of McDaniels’ likeliest of landing spots, reportedly filled their head coaching vacancy with Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur. With that door closing for McDaniels, NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport is now reporting that likely means McDaniels will be back in New England for the 2019 season.

McDaniels himself said the “book is closed” on any more interviews on a Tuesday morning conference call, thanking the Packers for the opportunity to interview with them.
“I’ll be here moving forward,” said McDaniels. “I’ve said before, I think I have one of the best jobs in the world.”
It sounds like McDaniels knows that his hometown Cleveland Browns are not a possibility this offseason, as they’re reportedly targeting a slew of other candidates not named Josh McDaniels.
After spurning the Colts at the last minute last offseason, McDaniels has said that he dreams of being an NFL head coach again. He just may have to wait another year for that opportunity to come along.
