BOSTON (AP) — Josh McDaniels sent ripples throughout the NFL with his decision to pull out of an agreement to become the Indianapolis Colts' head coach.

He has yet to speak publicly about what factored into the 11th hour about-face. But McDaniels' return as New England's offensive coordinator keeps a possible successor for Patriots coach Bill Belichick in house.

Belichick gave no indication after the Super Bowl loss to Philadelphia on Sunday night that he plans to exit in 2018. And just last month he said that it was "absolutely" his intention to be back for his 19th season with the Patriots.

But at age 65 he's also the second-oldest coach in the NFL, behind only Seattle's Pete Carroll at 66.

McDaniels has been one of the hottest names in coaching searches every offseason over the past three years.

At 41, he's considered one of the NFL's brightest young minds. What's more,Authentic Allen Robinson Jersey, McDaniels is someone whom Patriots quarterback Tom Brady trusts and recently called "a great coach and a great friend."

It's unclear how McDaniels' decision will affect him regarding future opportunities with other NFL teams,Authentic Joey Bosa Jersey, a gamble should he never get the opportunity to lead the Patriots.

Colts general manager Chris Ballard said Wednesday that the assistants that McDaniels had already hired to be on his staff would have their contracts honored. If McDaniels ever leaves New England again,Womens Dan Fouts Jersey, he will certainly have some repairs to make to his image around the league.

Responding to a suggestion that comfort with the Patriots might have played a role in McDaniels' decision,Authentic Dalvin Cook Jersey, former coach and current NBC football analyst Tony Dungy said in a tweet Wednesday that "there is no excuse big enough to justify this,Womens Dalvin Cook Jersey," adding it was indefensible to leave the assistant coaches he's hired in limbo.

Charlie Weis, who was Patriots offensive coordinator from 2000 through 2004 and coached alongside McDaniels, is now an analyst on SiriusXM NFL Radio. During an appearance on Mad Dog Sports Radio he called McDaniels' decision "unbelievable."

with 100 percent conviction,"I know his agent," Weis said. "And I promise you,Womens Joey Bosa Jersey, Bob LaMonte. I had his agent for 15 years, this is against what Bob LaMonte wanted him to do."

LaMonte didn't return a message seeking comment. LaMonte represents several coaches and executives around the NFL, including Ballard.

McDaniels is one of Belichick's most-tenured assistants, having served under him a combined of 15 years (nine as offensive coordinator) over two different stints,Womens Allen Robinson Jersey, beginning in 2001. It's a run that allowed him to be a part of all five of New England's Super Bowl wins.

The only break in his Patriots' timeline came from 2009 to 2011,Authentic Dan Fouts Jersey, when he served as the Denver Broncos coach for two seasons,Authentic Melvin Ingram Jersey, followed by a stop in St. Louis as the Rams offensive coordinator in 2011. He returned to New England in 2012.

During Super Bowl week,Womens Melvin Ingram Jersey, McDaniels spoke about the support he has in New England. He said it was the biggest takeaway from his failed experience in Denver.

"It's about the people that are with you more than it is about one person," McDaniels said. "There's no doubt about that. It takes an army of good people pulling the same direction to try to have success and I think the most important thing a head coach can do."

The Patriots have rarely let people with significant institutional knowledge walk out the door since Belichick took over in 2000.

And It would hardly be ideal timing for the Patriots to change offensive coordinators on Brady, who will also turn 41 in August.

Despite New England's Super Bowl loss to the Eagles, McDaniels was the architect of another typical Patriots offensive showcase, as New England gained 613 yards.

"I think he is so well prepared and gets me prepared every week," Brady said of McDaniels. "He is so diligent. He is just a great coach. I love playing for him."

McDaniels and Brady did have a heated moment on the sideline during win over Buffalo this past season. But Brady publicly apologized to McDaniels after video of their verbal skirmish went viral.

"A lot of people see it and they think the nature of our relationship would be something like that, but it's really the exact opposite of that," Brady said at the time. "He knows how much I love him."

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Jimmy Garoppolo could have waited and cashed in even more than he did after other quarterbacks re-set the market.

The San Francisco 49ers could have used a franchise tag instead of making a long-term commitment to make sure Garoppolo was worth a hefty investment after only seven NFL starts.

But both sides wanted this resolved quickly, and did so with a contract that will pay Garoppolo a record $27.5 million per season over the next five years.

"This is where I want to be, honestly," Garoppolo said at a news conference Friday. "I wanted to get this deal done as fast as possible. It will only help our team going forward going into free agency. ... I wanted to be here. I was excited to be here. I'm happy we got it done as fast as we did."

Garoppolo's $137.5 million contract has the richest annual value in NFL history,Authentic Pat Tillman Jersey, topping the deal Detroit's Matthew Stafford signed last year by $500,Authentic David Johnson Jersey,000 a season.

The deal includes nearly $49 million that is full guaranteed,Authentic Deion Jones Jersey, more than $74 million guaranteed for injury and more than $86 million that will be paid out over the first three seasons.

The franchise tag could have been a safer option for both sides,Authentic Austin Hooper Jersey, leading to more money for Garoppolo if he kept playing at the high level he showed this past season and more protection for the 49ers if he didn't reach that level.

But neither side was eager to go that direction.

"We became convinced we had that as an option,Authentic Vic Beasley Jr Jersey," general manager John Lynch said. "We wanted to make Jimmy a 49er for a long, but we didn't want to use it, long time. Do you have to have some faith for that? Absolutely. But he earned that faith we had for him. I know it wasn't a super long time but we felt we had a really good grasp on the talent and that was only confirmed when he got here."

San Francisco acquired Garoppolo from New England before the trade deadline for a 2018 second-round pick. As soon as he took the field a few weeks later, he immediately turned around a franchise that started the year with a 1-10 record.

Garoppolo took over as starter and led San Francisco to five straight wins to end the season. He completed 67.4 percent of his passes this season, averaging 8.8 yards per attempt with seven TDs, five interceptions and a 96.2 rating.

Among quarterbacks with at least 100 attempts last season, Garoppolo ranked first in yards per attempt, fourth in completion percentage. His 308.4 yards passing per game in his five starts also would have led the league had he played a full season.

Now he will have a full offseason to completely learn coach Kyle Shanahan's offense, which could lead to even more production.

"Now the rush isn't quite the same," Shanahan said. "He can start from the beginning and start from the first page and not the 50th page. He can get a better foundation. When you have a better foundation of where you're coming from and learning, it gives you a chance to play at a higher level."

Garoppolo has won all seven starts in his career,Womens Pat Tillman Jersey, with Ben Roethlisberger the most recent to do it with 15 wins in a row in the regular season for Pittsburgh in 2004-05. Garoppolo's 2,Womens David Johnson Jersey, including two in New England to start the 2016 season when Brady was suspended for his role in "Deflategate." Only four other quarterbacks since the 1970 merger won their first seven starts,Womens Deion Jones Jersey,038 yards passing in his first seven starts are the fourth most among all quarterbacks since 1970.

The deal still leaves the 49er with more than $60 million in salary cap room,Womens Austin Hooper Jersey, with several more holes to fill. The most glaring needs are upgrading the skill position players and interior of the offensive line,Womens Vic Beasley Jr Jersey, according to executive vice president Paraag Marathe, and finding a big-time pass rusher and cornerbacks to help the defense.

Lynch said he plans to be "aggressively prudent" with that money but believes this deal will help sell the organization to potential free agents, including some who played for San Francisco this past year.

"One of the reasons for the urgency, was heading into free agency this is a big deal, if there was some for us," Lynch said. "It's 75 degrees and sunny outside. We have this guy. Who wouldn't want to be here? We want to become a destination where everyone wants to be."

The New York Giants were denied permission to interview and hire Minnesota Vikings quarterbacks coach Kevin Stefanski as their offensive coordinator,Authentic Sam Bradford Jersey, a league source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Pat Shurmur, who was the offensive coordinator in Minnesota before leaving for New York,Stefanski was recently passed over for the Vikings offensive coordinator job. The Giants and their new coach, had been waiting for several weeks to see how things panned out with Stefanski and the Vikings. It didn't turn out in their favor.

but the Vikings decided to deny that reunion,Authentic Stefon Diggs Jersey, a somewhat surprising outcome given Shurmur's relationship with the organization and Stefanski losing out to former Philadelphia Eagles quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo for the OC position. The Giants now remain without an offensive coordinator. Some possible candidates that have been mentioned in recent weeks are former Seattle Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell and Eagles running backs coach Duce Staley,Stefanski and Shurmur were known to have a strong working relationship, who also has a previous working relationship with Shurmur.

The Eagles could also deny the Giants permission to speak with Staley. He remains under contract with Philadelphia, according to a source.

and their offensive coordinator, Frank Reich,Authentic Harrison Smith Jersey,The Eagles recently lost their quarterbacks coach,Womens Brandin Cooks Jersey, is in the running for the Indianapolis Colts head-coaching job.

The offensive coordinator job with the Giants does not include playcalling duties. Shurmur intends to call plays in New York,Authentic Brandin Cooks Jersey, much as he did for most of the past two seasons in Minnesota.

35,Authentic Drew Brees Jersey, would have had playcalling duties as the Vikings' offensive coordinator. Instead,Stefanski, he will remain a part of Mike Zimmer's coaching staff for at least one more year as they decide how to proceed at the quarterback position.

an impending free agent,Womens Drew Brees Jersey,Shurmur and Stefanski helped the Vikings get the most out of backup Case Keenum this past season. Keenum, threw 22 touchdown passes and seven interceptions after taking over as the starter for Sam Bradford.

He would have had increased responsibility with the Giants,Womens Sam Bradford Jersey, most notably putting together the weekly offensive game plans.

the son of Memphis Grizzlies executive vice president Ed Stefanski,Stefanski,Womens Harrison Smith Jersey,was believed to be Shurmur's top choice.

Shurmur does have most of his staff together with the Giants. Two holes remain at offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.
