The New England Patriots have a backup plan in place in case they lose offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, according to a source. McDaniels is expected to become either the Indianapolis Colts head coach or the New York Giants head coach.
Our source says if McDaniels leaves, as expected, Head Coach Bill Belichick is expected to target Alabama Crimson Tide offensive coordinator Brian Daboll to be their next offensive coordinator. Daboll has been the Crimson Tide offensive coordinator this past season.
Daboll helped guide the Crimson Tide to the College Football Playoff National Championship win on Monday night. The Crimson Tide defeated the Georgia Bulldogs, 26-23, in overtime at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia.
This was his first-time being a college assistant coach since being a graduate assistant with the Michigan State Spartans in 1998 and 1999. Nick Saban, the Alabama Head Coach, was the Spartans Head Coach at the time.
The 42-year-old coach already has ties to the Patriots. Also, Belichick and Saban are friends.
Daboll worked for the Patriots before moving on to the Crimson Tide. He worked for the team from 2013 through 2016.
He was an offensive assistant for the Patriots in 2013. He was then promoted to tight ends coach from 2014 through 2016.
This would be his fourth-time as an offensive coordinator in the NFL should he replace McDaniels, according to their plan.
McDaniels has been the Patriots offensive coordinator since the 2012 season — but he cannot officially accept a job until the
team is eliminated, or New England wins another Super Bowl.
Daboll was the Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator in 2009 and 2010. He then spent one season as the Miami Dolphins offensive coordinator in 2011, before being hired as the Chiefs offensive coordinator in 2012.
