ESPN's flurry of news on NFL Countdown included a Josh McDaniels update -- he's headed to New England. Adam Schefter reports McDaniels is expected to join the Patriots -- like, immediately -- and will be the offensive coordinator in 2012.
This sort of affects the Chiefs because they were one of the teams reported to be interested in McDaniels. We never got the confirmation that they were and we likely never will now.
The Patriots make more sense for McDaniels than KC (if the Chiefs were ever an option, which is debatable). He joins an offense that's still one of the best in the league and is reunited with the quarterback who has made Bill Belichick assistants millions and millions of dollars.
The Pats offensive coordinator job is open, of course, with Bill O'Brien headed to Penn State.
Oh to be a fly on the wall in the Chiefs offices to hear what they think about this...
