Report: Bill Belichick Meeting Led to Josh McDaniels Staying with Patriots

Wednesday February 7th, 2018 - New England Patriots Tickets

Bill Belichick's "willingness to take his mentorship to a higher level" with offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels played a major factor in McDaniels' decision to spurn the head coaching job with the Indianapolis Colts and remain with the New England Patriots, according to Mike Reiss of ESPN.com.

Per that report:

"Belichick told McDaniels that he would spend more time with him on the inner workings of the Patriots, including roster construction and salary-cap management, which was viewed as 'extremely valuable' to McDaniels. It is an arrangement that owners Robert and Jonathan Kraft endorsed because it could ultimately be part of a succession plan for Belichick in the future, although no assurances were made to McDaniels."
