08:03 AM ET 01.01 | Before the market for him had time to heat up, Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels has cooled it off. [McDaniels] has informed teams that he will not interview for any head coaching vacancies, according to ESPN's NFL Insider Adam Schefter. Seven head coaches have already been fired on Monday, as the NFL enters it cycle of head coaching and general manager overhauling. Previous reports linked McDaniels to the opening in Cleveland, where Pat Shurmur was fired from on Monday. On Sunday, Schefter reported that McDaniels was not likely to be a candidate for the job when it opened. Monday's news should temper any speculation about McDaniels potentially taking any other head coaching gig.

I think the media had more interest in McDaniels going to Cleveland, than Cleveland had in McDaniels.

If he can stay patient enough I think he'll be Hoodie's eventual replacement.

Agreed. McDaniels actually just did the best thing for his career. Staying there will let him learn why he wasn't successful in Denver. Smart move on his part.

Josh is a good example of the Peter Principal.

Uhh, Peter Principle. Duh.

Mc Daniel is doing something right, Brady had an outstanding Year!!!

Seems like a smart decision.

Happy New Year everyone.

An example of your own example...I think. :)

Heck, I could get Brady to have awesome stats.

It's not like McDaniels is great at actually picking the QB in the draft.

I really don't think they're beating a path to his door.

Josh McDaniels is not a head nor will he ever again be a head coach. the midget has screwed up so bad in Denver and in St. Louis he ain't going anywhere but riding on Bradys rear end the rest of his little career. Josh is a glorified gopher. If Bill Belichick twists his ankle-Josh will limp.

Wow, sounds bitter. Did he do something to you personally?
The Pats offense has played better this year than in the past few years since Josh went to Denver.
He was too young and inexperienced for that job, and may now realize his best future is working with BB and seeing if Mr. Kraft and his son likes him as an eventual replacement.
No guarantees, and if some owner waves enough guaranteed moeny at him why wouldn't he take it?

Like the great Dirtty Harry once said, "It's good that a man should know his limitations!"

Don't you have to be on the market before one takes himself off the market?

Cause Banner when he was the head of the Eagles hired an innovative assistant as his first hire as a coach Andy Reid

Sorry but he will just not this year and rightly so there are no good QB';s on the teams that sounded like they'd be interested in him and he knows if he screws up the HC job again that will be the last time so they have to have some stability and depth on their roster. Reminds me of another guy that when he left his first HC job everyone said he just rode his mentor's success and should stick to being a coordinator5 which he did for a few years with his mentor and then he took over from Pete Carroll and he's still there
