Agent drops Josh McDaniels after Colts coaching controversy

Agent drops Josh McDaniels after Colts coaching controversy

The Indianapolis Colts were brimming with excitement preparing to introduce Bill Belichick protégé Josh McDaniels as the new head coach, but at the final hour, Belichick and New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft persuaded McDaniels to stay put in Foxboro.

Ballard addressed that issue in Wednesday's press conference by saying that Luck will not need another surgery.

But as he appeared to be the leading Niners candidate, McDaniels withdrew his name from consideration and elected to stay on in New England. "The rivalry is back on", said Ballard, revealing that he had dealt with McDaniels swiftly when he called to break the news of his reversal on Tuesday. "Either you're in or you're out".

Before his change of heart, McDaniels had already begun building a coaching staff in Indianapolis.

The Patriots have won seven consecutive games against the Colts, including twice in the playoffs, and they've outscored their former AFC East foes during that stretch, 285-152. Matt Eberflus who was the ex-assistant head coach for the Dallas Cowboys was hired to be the defensive coordinator while Mike Phair who served as the ex-defensive line coach for IL was hired to serve as the defensive line coach.

The Colts are coming off one their worst years ever in the Andrew Luck led era. "Thank you", he said, although he added that "I'm fine" when asked how he was feeling.

Long Island weather: Cold, sunny Friday ahead of weekend rain
The service predicts an accumulation of anywhere between 3 and 10 inches Thursday , depending on where the notice was posted. The weather service issued a " hazardous weather outlook " about the possibility of some accumulating snow starting Friday .

It's a stunning turn of events that came just hours after the Colts official social media pages welcomed McDaniels to Indy.

"I was absolutely shocked", Weis said on SiriusXM Radio (h/t the Boston Globe).

The parade starts near the team's stadium and ends its 5-mile trek at the art museum steps that Sylvester Stallone climbed in the "Rocky" movies - a fitting finish for a team seen as the underdog, just like the fictional fighter.

LaMonte, who is also Ballard's agent, has terminated his relationship with McDaniels, according to sources. "But having assistant coaches leave jobs to go with you then leave them out to dry is indefensible". There's a lot of good coaches out there.

McDaniels has been considered a top-tier head coaching candidate for several years even though his only other coaching stint with the Broncos ended badly.

"In a normal world you would assume that, but again, are we living in a normal world right now?"
