FOXBORO (CBS) – Welcome back Josh McDaniels. The Pats offensive coordinator is once again a member of the Patriots. After stints with Denver as a head coach and the Rams as an offensive coordinator, Josh says it’s great to be home.
“I feel like I have a great job, I’m blessed to work for Mr. Kraft and Coach Belichick,” he said. “We’ve got a great staff of people around us, and a team that’s really willing to work hard and listen to you. That’s the only thing you can ask as a coach and I’m really happy to have this position.”
So now it’s up to Josh to try and install that 2007 offense that made the Patriots undefeated in the regular season. That’s easier said than done. Right now the Pats are just trying to get their feet wet.
“The tight ends are different, the backs are a lot younger. Things have changed,” McDaniels told reporters after the Patriots finished up practice in front of more than 12,000 fans. “There’s a few different coaches on our staff, but I think that happens at every team every year in the NFL, and we just adapt. And we are so used to doing it by now, it kind of comes with the territory.”
