McDaniels said he is enjoying his role with New England, and hopes he's growing and will continue to grow in his current role.

In light of being blocked from interviewing, it appears Kingsbury is resigning as USC's offensive coordinator, per Fox Sports' Jay Glazer, a position he accepted over a month ago.

McDaniels said Tuesday "the book is closed" on head-coaching interviews, and now he's concentrated on the Patriots' upcoming divisional-round matchup against the Los Angeles Chargers.


According to a report from Pro Football Talk, the Patriots are expecting McDaniels to leave this offseason amid rumors of him coaching the Green Bay Packers or Cleveland Browns. "It's been very educational for me every time I've gone through it and I've appreciated every single one of them". "I'm focused on the Chargers and our season, finishing strong and I'll be here moving forward". I've said before I think I have one of the best jobs in the world.

The Patriots' offensive coordinator confirmed to reporters Tuesday he will spend a 19th season in Foxborough after failing to land the Packers' head-coaching job.

McDaniels was also asked about what happened with the Colts a year ago and if that impacted things at all with other teams this season. "I am grateful for the opportunity that I had, but obviously more importantly thankful for the opportunity that I have here".


McDaniels spurning the Colts last off-season likely was a main reason in the Browns not asking to interview him.

In November, Mahomes said that Kingsbury "has the work ethic and he has the mind and he has the innovativeness, I guess you would say - if that's a word - to be in this league".
