OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR MCDANIELS BACK WITH THE PATRIOTS
Tue, 10 Jan 2012 03:24 PM EST

New England Patriots and Josh McDaniels have concluded to an agreement that may make McDaniels the team’s offensive coordinator in 2012, according to a league resource. Football spreads

The Patriots announced Sunday night that McDaniels has been hired as an offensive assistant coach for the remainder of this season.

McDaniels will be the replacement of Bill O’Brien, the new head coach at Penn State. O’Brien will operate as the Patriots’ offensive coordinator for the remainder of this period. Football lines

McDaniels is coming back to the franchise he left in 2009, when he took the Broncos ‘ head coaching role.

The New England Patriots will against the Broncos in the divisional playoffs Saturday night at Foxborough, Mass.

“There’s no form I can stand up in front of our football team and talk about devotion and dedication and then leave the Patriots at the start of a playoff run,” O’Brien claimed at his inaugural meeting at Penn State. “I have committed to the New England Patriots to see them through this playoff run. There’s not going to be a lot of sleep over the next two-to-three weeks. Any split I have, to be certain I have as much time as I can for Penn State.”

McDaniels is going from worst to first overnight, leaving the Rams and being part of the Patriots team preparing for next weekend’s divisional playoff game.

He was offensive coordinator with the Patriots from 2006-08 prior to becoming going to Denver. He was discharged with a 3-9 record in 2010 after losing 17 of his last 22 games. The Patriots, who had a bye this weekend, go into the playoffs with an eight-game winning run.

The 35-year-old McDaniels was the only Rams helper under contract thru next season when Steve Spagnuolo was fired on January 2.

“I’m sure Josh will have openings around the NFL to possibly be a coordinator or greater throughout this action,” Kevin Demoff, the Rams vice chairman and chief operating officer, recounted at the time. “It’s going to be fluid, but we’ll figure out what’s best for both parts.”

The Rams scored the fewest points per game in the league, 12.1, gained the second fewest yards, 283.6, and the third fewest yards passing, 179.4. Sam Bradford struggled at quarterback with just 6 touchdown passes and 6 interceptions in McDaniels ‘ proceeding, which had a lot more longer creating pass plays than the Rams had in 2010 under Pat Shurmur.

That lack of projection contrasts sharply with the Patriots offense under McDaniels in particular during 2007 when they went 16-0 and then won 2 playoff games before losing the Super Bowl to the NY Giants 17-14.

In that season, Tom Brady set a single-season league record with 50 touchdown passes for an offense that averaged a league-best 411.2 yards. It also was first in yards passing, 295.7 and points per game, 36.8.

Now McDaniels will be reunited with Brady and another bountiful offense in time for the Patriots trainings for their divisional playoff game. As the top-seeded team in the AFC, they earned home-field benefit throughout the meeting playoffs.

The Patriots were 2nd in the league in total yards with 428 per game and yards passing with 317.8. Their typical of 32.1 points was 3rd.
