Young Offensive Coordinator McDaniels Declining Head Coaching Interviews, Will Stay With Patriots

Josh McDaniels, the New England Patriots' 31-year-old offensive coordinator, has pulled himself out of consideration for head coaching vacancies with other teams.

McDaniels was drawing interest after overseeing the Patriots' record-setting offense. The Baltimore Ravens and Atlanta Falcons reportedly were interested in interviewing him. But McDaniels declined the interviews.

"I am very grateful for the chance to interview for NFL head coaching positions, but I have decided not to pursue those opportunities at this time," he said in a written statement released by the Patriots. "I plan to focus all my attention on our postseason preparation."
