Charlie Weis: Josh McDaniels made 'dumbest move' if no assurances

McDaniels turns down Colts' coaching job; search resumes for Indy

"I didn't watch the Super Bowl". I don't deal with [the rumors] world. "That's what this organization is built on, and you can bet we're going to get there unquestionably". "Some are true, some are not".

A pair of surefire candidates could come from the Super Bowl LII champion Philadelphia Eagles. Up to this point, they hadn't discussed anything regarding McDaniels' future. However, they had to start over considering in the first wave of interviews they were down to McDaniels and Mike Vrabel, and Vrabel is the Tennessee Titans' new coach. The two talked on the phone, making sure everything was on track for McDaniels' arrival in Indianapolis.

But alas, "The rivalry is back on", Colts general manager Chris Ballard said yesterday.

By Tuesday afternoon, Robert and Jonathan Kraft, as well as Belichick, met with McDaniels again and made an aggressive pitch. Yet even knowing that, Weis still says he has trouble believing what McDaniels did.

However, McDaniels has invested a lot of time in New England, and for a long time seemed to be the heir apparent to Bill Belichick.

That was the extent of the exchange with McDaniels at his door.

Beyond financial and professional stability, McDaniels also was thinking of his family.

While it's official that Patricia is headed to Detroit, McDaniels backed down from the job with the Indianapolis Colts. He called Ballard to inform him and explain his side but the latter didn't care for an explanation. "I mean, look, everyone that's in a position to make a call can selfishly decide whatever they want because it's ultimately their life". I told him, 'Les, I don't have this job yet; I can't in good faith tell you that.' He said, 'Well, coach, it's been on the radio for an hour. The Colts will be prudent when hiring their coach, especially after the first attempt went as poorly as it did. It would appear the defensive philosophies of Frazier and new defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus match up, which matters since Eberflus was hired to run McDaniels' defense and Ballard said Eberflus will stay on as defensive coordinator. But as Rapoport notes, Colts owner Jim Irsay is apparently a big fan of Frazier's, which is why they are bringing him in to interview.

Success! An email has been sent with a link to confirm list signup.

Ballard took the blame for scheduling a news conference without a signed deal. "I'm very confident in this".

"That's on me, that's not on our organization". We went around for a minute, and he said he was out, and I said okay, we're going to move forward. It seemed like the flawless fit for a young coach looking to make his mark. "We'll move forward with them and we'll get the right leader for the Indianapolis Colts, one that believes what we believe and wants to go where we want to go".

He has been working his way back ever since, keeping an Excel file on his laptop titled "lessonslearned.xls."

Eberflus' presence indicates the expertise of the next head coach would be on offense.

One source said: "He's always just insisted that everything be right, or he wasn't going to leave".

All throughout this process of finding a new head coach, Ballard has preached that the organization wants a coach that wants to be with the Colts and not exclusively the other way around.
