If he’s not serving as offensive coordinator for the New England Patriots next season, most people assume Josh McDaniels will be coaching either the New York Giants, the Chicago Bears or the Indianapolis Colts.
Well, you reportedly can add a fourth team to that list.
The Tennessee Titans are set to play the Kansas City Chiefs in their AFC Wild Card Round matchup Saturday afternoon. But even though the Titans are a playoff team, head coach Mike Mularkey’s job isn’t safe, according to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport.
Furthermore, should the Titans lose, they reportedly could set their sights on McDaniels to replace Mularkey.
The Titans obviously aren’t as marquee of a franchise as the Giants or the Bears. But in quarterback Marcus Mariota and a young, talented defense, the Titans have the pieces in place to be an AFC contender going forward.
Of course, McDaniels isn’t the only Patriots staffer who could be on the move, as defensive coordinator Matt Patricia has been linked to the Arizona Cardinals and the Detroit Lions.
Oh, and there’s the report that Bill Belichick could be interested in coaching the Giants.
