Patriots OC McDaniels Withdraws From Colts Head Coach Job

Belichick, who acts as the Patriots' de facto GM in addition to his head-coaching duties, also promised to give McDaniels a voice in roster construction and salary cap decisions. He called Ballard to inform him and explain his side but the latter didn't care for an explanation.

But as the news conference continued, Ballard said people say no to job offers every day, he wished McDaniels well at the end of Tuesday night's brief call and that his primary concern now is finding someone who wants the job.

Although he was hired on January 22, 1996, Tony Dungy told Ballard he was interviewed by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers four different times and that he didn't even finish hiring onto his coaching staff until March. "Now, if we were sitting middle of March, I'd have a different perspective on it, but let's don't over complicate this". We have work to do. I've not once hid that.

But, as Ballard alluded to, there is a precedent - and a pretty darn good one - if the team doesn't immediately interview and then hire its next head coach and start getting his new staff on board.

"To me, it's about being right", Ballard said. "It's never about one guy".

Flu season in "second wave"
A total of 19,333 influenza cases have been reported in New York City so far this season, as of February 3. This rate is higher than the anticipated 7.3% pneumonia- or flu-related deaths estimated for the week.

"Everybody gets in panic mode and just starts hiring, and I just don't believe in that", Ballard said.

While Ballard said he likes all three and will honor their contracts by keeping them on the next coach's staff, others strongly criticized McDaniels from walking away from them.

Chicago approached its coaching search differently than Indianapolis in that Bears general manager Ryan Pace, chairman George McCaskey and CEO Ted Phillips all were part of the process, whereas Colts owner Jim Irsay didn't meet with McDaniels until his second interview during the week off before Super Bowl LII.

"That's on me, that's not on our organization".

"I love the Patriot nation" he said as his first public comment since turning down the Colts job.
