News today that the Tennessee Titans have fired head coach Mike Mularkey could mean the Patriots have a good chance of losing offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels as well.
McDaniels, the Patriots' offensive coordinator, can't formally accept the Colts' job offer until after the Patriots' season ends.
Colts' former head coach, Chuck Pagano, was let go after six seasons with the team following their win over the Texans in the final game of the 2017 season on December 31.

This will mark the second National Football League head coaching gig for McDaniels as he held an 11-17 record with the Denver Broncos in 2009-10. As explained in a 2016 story by Dan Pompei for Bleacher Report, the now-extensive document, titled "lessonslearned" highlights everything McDaniels learned in his brief time as a head coach, and what he'd do differently when given the opportunity again.
Since the first of the year, the search has been on to find the next head coach for the team.
The Titans parted ways with coach Mike Mularkey on Monday morning. Defensive coach #Matt Patricia and offensive coordinator #Josh McDaniels have been there for most of New England's success along the way, however, the Belichick, Patricia, McDaniels era may be coming to an end. Patricia was also reported to be the favorite for the New York Giants position.
So who exactly are these coaching candidates for the Colts to potentially become their newest coordinators?
