Reports: Browns may target Josh McDaniels for head coaching vacancy

ESPN.com is reporting that Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels is expected to be on the short list of candidates (along with former Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt) for the head coaching vacancy in Cleveland, where the Browns fired Rob Chudzinski after a 4-12 record in his first and only season in charge of the team. McDaniels is currently in his second stint as a member of Bill Belichick‘s coaching staff in New England. However, the NFL Network reports that McDaniels might not accept the Browns job if the position was offered to him.
On Monday, in an interview with WEEI’s Dennis & Callahan show, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady made clear his preference that McDaniels remains where he is.
“Josh is the best offensive coach I could ever imagine. He’s so prepared, he’s so confident in what he does. He figures out a way every week to get us in the best position as players to win,” said Brady. “I have so much respect for him and what he does for me, what he does for our team. He’s just a great coach. He’s got a lot of poise, got a lot of discipline. I hope he doesn’t go anywhere. I mean, I’d love for him to coach me the rest of my life. But that’s just the way it is. He’s one of my best friends, and I love having him.’
