Patriots' McDaniels staying in New England

Josh McDaniels will remain with the New England Patriots for at least another year.

The Patriots offensive coordinator told reporters on Tuesday "the book is closed" on his head coaching interviews and he will be in New England moving forward.

McDaniels was rumoured to be a coaching candidate with the Cleveland Browns, but he denied having any contact with them.

He did interview for the Green Bay Packers job, but they are reported to have hired Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur as the replacement for Mike McCarthy.

"Yeah, the book is closed," McDaniels said. "It's always a humbling experience to have an opportunity to interview with anybody for that position and I was thankful for the opportunity to meet with Green Bay.

"It always gives you greater insight into another organisation and how they do things. It's been very educational for me every time I've gone through it and I've appreciated every single one of them.

"That was great but no, I'm completely focused on the Chargers and our season and finishing it strong and I’ll be here moving forward.

McDaniels accepted the head coaching job with the Indianapolis Colts this past offseason but backed out before he was officially appointed.
