St. Louis Rams offensive coordinator survived the coaching purge conducted by the franchise following the end of a poor regular season, but his future still could lie elsewhere.
The NFL Network's Jason La Canfora believes the Chiefs would be interested in McDaniels if Romeo Crennel is promoted to head coach. He also suggests there is some potential for a return to New England for McDaniels:
The Kansas City Chiefs could pinpoint Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy as a possible coordinator/coach-in-waiting should they be unable to land Josh McDaniels from St. Louis, sources said. (According to league sources, the Rams would like to retain McDaniels as offensive coordinator to stay with Bradford.) McDaniels would be a candidate in Kansas City if Romeo Crennel is promoted as many expect, and New England coach Bill Belichick also would welcome him back if Patriots offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien departs for Penn State or the Kansas City opening himself.
Crennel has not been promoted just yet, and Bill O'Brien is still the Pats' OC, but this appears to be a situation worth keeping an eye on.
