As La Canfora notes, McDaniels’ stock could be at an all-time high at the moment, meaning he’s in a position to “cash in” while landing a new position. In his second stint as New England’s play-caller, McDaniels has helped lead the club to several playoff appearances and a Super Bowl title in 2015. This season, McDaniels has dealt with turnover at quarterback, but still managed to guide the Patriots offense en route to a 3-0 start.

McDaniels, of course, has already had one go-round as a head coach, as he led the Broncos from 2009-10. After beginning his Denver tenure with an 6-0 record, McDaniels proceeded to post a 5-17 record from there on out, losing the team amid reports of micromanagement. He was fired midway through the 2010 campaign, then spent a year with the Rams before returning to the Patriots.

Now 40, McDaniels was linked to the Titans and Dolphins vacancies last offseason, but never officially interviewed for either position.

    Tennessee and Detroit seem the most likely to me. Maybe San Diego.

    No team in their right mind should hire this guy.
    Yeah he is good in New England where they have a system that changes every week basically.
    What usually happens when someone off the Belicheck Tree Gets a head coaching job.
    They Crash and Burn. Mangini did okay with the Jets,
    Romeo had one winning season with the Browns.
    O’Brian did okay with Penn State,
    But other then that they have stunk up the joint.
    Nick Saban was a College HC before he got to Belicheck so do not count him from the Belicheck tree.
    all you have to do is look at the 2011 Rams, when these coaches are not with Belicheck they are generally not successful.
