Josh McDaniels Named St. Louis Rams Offensive Coordinator, According To Report

After reportedly meeting with the Minnesota Vikings, former Denver Broncos head coach Josh McDaniels has been hired as the St. Louis Rams offensive coordinator according to ESPN. The Rams lost previous OC Pat Shurmur last week when he left to become the Cleveland Browns head coach.

McDaniels will get to put his reputation as a developer of quarterbacks to the test, working with young Sam Bradford in St. Louis. A coach who can help turn Tim Tebow into something resembling an NFL quarterback has got to be very excited about working with Bradford, a more conventional former Heisman Trophy winner.

In recent weeks McDaniels has also been mentioned as a possible offensive coordinator for the Seattle Seahawks and even the Atlanta Falcons. He's carved an interesting path through the NFL, rising from the bottom of the New England Patriots coaching staff to become Bill Belichick's right-hand man before taking over the Broncos and winding up in St. Louis.

Josh McDaniels Interviewing With Minnesota Vikings, According To Report

Former Denver Broncos head coach Josh McDaniels is meeting with the Minnesota Vikingsaccording to a report by ESPN's Ed Werder. It's not clear which position he's supposed to be interviewing for, or if that's all up in the air, but as Werder notes it's hard to imagine a deposed head coach accepting a job as a position coach and not a coordinator job.

McDaniels was fired by the Broncos after seeing Denver off to a 3-9 start and overseeing a growing quarterback mini-controversy. Nothing controversial about Minnesota's QB situation, so long as Brett Favre actually retires and so does the other guy who's not Joe Webb and the team signs somebody who's very clearly a better option that Joe Webb. No sweat!

He was reportedly not interested in the available San Francisco 49ers head coaching job. Before taking over the Broncos, McDaniels worked as Bill Belichick's offensive coordinator for the New England Patriots.
