Josh McDaniels not leaving Patriots to be 49ers head coach

17 January 2017

While it is great for the Patriots that McDaniels is back for next season, he will likely be one of the premier head coaching candidates next season.

McDaniels' decision to stay in New England instead of overtaking the 49ers' rebuilding project was heavily informed by family considerations.

"At this time", McDaniels told reporters today on a conference call, "it's just best for my family and myself to remain here in New England". The 49ers have fired their head coach after each of the past three seasons, and have dismissed their head coach in each of their past four non-winning seasons.

McDaniels had shied away from head coaching interviews in recent years, preferring to focus on his duties alongside Bill Belichick in New England.

McDaniels, who interviewed with San Francisco earlier this month, was reportedly a favorite to get the job, with Jason La Canfora tweeting Monday that the 49ers were "very much interested" in hiring him.

Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia had also interviewed for the head coaching positions in Los Angeles and San Diego, both of which have been filled.

The San Francisco 49ers are the only team still looking for a head coach.

The Patriots (15-2) will play the Pittsburgh Steelers (13-5) in the AFC championship game at 6:40 p.m. Sunday at Gillette Stadium with the victor advancing to the Super Bowl.

The 49ers finished this season with the NFL's second-worst record at 2-14.

The Falcons (12-5) are one of four teams still alive in the National Football League playoffs, hosting the Green Bay Packers on Sunday in the NFC Championship Game.

Cable's team lost to Shanahan's team, so he's available to be hired immediately.
