NFL Network: Colts expected to hire Josh McDaniels

With New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels expected to accept the Indianapolis Colts head coaching job, the Pats will need to find a replacement for him once their season comes to an end.

Vrabel is now the defensive coordinator for the Houston Texans, and he has been involved with the organization since the start of his National Football League coaching career.

Hours after reports suggested that the Titans and coach Mike Mularkey were working toward a contract extension, the team announced Monday that Mularkey has been fired. Also, although the Colts already have a promising young back in Marlon Mack, many people also believe that the Colts should heavily consider drafting running back Saquon Barkley from Penn State University. Robinson was in the Patriots' scouting department from 2002-13.

Knowing how important a GM/head coach relationship is for a successful franchise, this is a factor to keep in mind.

The Colts defense struggled mightily in 2017.

Eberflus added the title of passing game coordinator in 2016. But he's been waiting for the right opportunity, the right combination of quarterback and franchise stability.

But the things mentioned above could easily sway McDaniels to a job that was not previously thought to be open in 2018. McDaniels found the job appealing too, with the presence of Andrew Luck and Jacoby Brissett at quarterback, and a respected general manager, Chris Ballard, in place.

New England is also expected to lose defensive coordinator Matt Patricia, who reportedly is in line to named coach for the Lions. Per Albert Breer of SI.com, Mike Vrabel and Josh McDaniels have emerged as finalists for this position.

A curve ball has been thrown into this coaching search and we will see if the Colts have the ability to fight it off.
