Broncos Hire Josh McDaniels As New Coach
Total Pro Sports – The Denver Broncos have reached an agreement with New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels to become their new head coach. McDaniels replaces Mike Shanahan who was fired after 14 years on the job with the Broncos.
Broncos players are excited about the hiring, Dre Bly had this to say about his new head coach:
“That’s enthusiasm, man,” Bly said, according to the Rocky Mountain News. “Coach Shanahan had a lot of respect. Guys looked up to him and had a good relationship. But with a guy like him, it’s like with [Broncos assistant] Jeremy Bates — exciting, enthusiasm. It’s like what Mike Tomlin brings to Pittsburgh. He brings excitement to that team. It’s good for our team. And I hope we respond to him.”
Josh McDaniels is now the third coach to leave the coaching staff of the Patriots to become an NFL head coach. Bill Belichick should just open a school of coaching, with all the coaches that have left his staff to become head coaches in the NFL it only makes sense.
Josh McDaniels Coaching Bio
• Won three Super Bowls in eight seasons with Patriots
• Patriots offensive coordinator/QB coach since 2006
• Patriots set NFL records for points, TDs scored in 2007
• Will be 12th head coach in Broncos history
Hopefully McDaniels can turnaround the Broncos team which flopped at the end of the season and missed the playoffs. McDaniels is an offensive guru who lead the Patriots to one of the highest scoring teams in the NFL.
The combination of McDaniels and the high flying Denver Broncos is a scary combination, but hopefully they won’t flop like they did this year.
