INDIANAPOLIS — A person familiar with the negotiations says the Indianapolis Colts are “close” to reaching a deal to hire Josh McDaniels as their new coach.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on Monday on condition of anonymity because they were still working on the contract.
But even if the two sides agreed to a deal, the official announcement couldn’t be made until New England’s season ends. McDaniels is the Patriots offensive coordinator and is preparing for Sunday’s AFC championship game.
McDaniels has been one of the most coveted coordinators on the coaching carousel this year.
McDaniels and Houston defensive coordinator Mike Vrabel are believed to be the Colts’ finalists.
McDaniels went 11-17 in two seasons as Denver’s head coach in 2009-10.
