The Broncos have found the reincarnation of former head coach Mike Shanahan in another young offensive coach. Denver hired Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels late Sunday night to be their head coach, making the 32-year-old the youngest coach in the NFL.
McDaniels received a lot of praise for his work as the architect of the greatest offense in NFL history, the 2007 Patriots. He also helped the development of Matt Cassel, who never started a game in his college career, to lead the Patriots to a surprising 11-5 record without Tom Brady.
Reaction: As I figured, another coach plucked off the Bill Belichick coaching tree. As with the rest of his coaches, Belichick will manage to find a replacement from within for the now-vacant offensive coordinator position.
