Okay posted this in the hot seat thread, but this deserves its own thread. Per NFL.com TV last night. Monday Feb. 5th McDaniels and Indianapolis agreed to a contract including all financial packages. Tuesday Feb. 6th - McDaniels goes into the office of NE to confirm he is leaving and to start packing. He is called into meetings with ownership and maybe HC and post those meetings - he immediately notified Indy he was not taking the job. Speculation from all sources is this - 1) He has poisoned his chances of any other NFL job - you don't do this folks 2) He has probably been promised to be Bellicheck's replacement 3) Bellicheck is speculated to be retiring after this season All of this is speculation, Nothing official has been confirmed by NE. However, most if not all that I have seen talking agrees there is no way he walks away from Indy unless he was promised something by NE, OR he has info on Luck that most don't know.
