On a conference call with the media Tuesday morning, Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels sounded like a man who is sticking around Foxborough, at least for another year.
Asked if the “book is closed” on him going elsewhere, he replied flatly: “The book is closed. … I’m completely focused on the Chargers and our season and finishing strong. I’ll be here moving forward.
“I’m grateful for the opportunity I had, but obviously more importantly grateful for the opportunity I have here. I’ve said before I think I have one of the best jobs in the world. I’m grateful for the opportunity to continue competing this week against the Chargers.”
One other interesting note — despite reports he might have drawn the interest of the Browns, McDaniels said he never had contact with them regarding their head coaching vacancy.
“No sir — I have had no contact with them,” he said when asked about Cleveland.
