There’s not much love lost for Josh McDaniels in Indianapolis after he backed out of the Colts head coach job to stay on as the Patriots offensive coordinator earlier this offseason.
But as McDaniels explained Monday, his decision wasn’t about the Colts organization 鈥?it was about what he thought was best for his family and his future.

Indianapolis did a tremendous job. They have a tremendous organization and I was lucky to be considered and I just think once I found out [what my future in New England was], I made the right decision for me and my family at this time, McDaniels said (via The Boston Globe).
Look, I’m privileged to have the opportunity to do that and when they kind of crystallized that 鈥?’Hey, here’s what we see going forward and here’s how we would like you to fit into it’ 鈥?it gave me a reason to stop and say, ‘All right, what’s the best decision for me?’ And certainly it was difficult. But I made the decision on my own, nobody pushed me into it.
Still only 41, McDaniels may likely get another chance to be an NFL head coach. However, any GM outside of New England may balk at his word.
As the No. 5 starter, Skoglund has been skipped because of off days and three snow-day postponements.
Skoglund went 1-2 with a 9.50 ERA in five starts and two relief appearances last season. He pitched 6 1/3 scoreless innings on May 30 versus the Detroit Tigers to win his big league debut 1-0 against Justin Verlander. In his final 11 2/3 innings, he allowed 19 earned runs.
Skoglund went 1-0 with a 3.38 ERA in four spring training appearances, striking out 11 and walking none in 10 2/3 innings, permitting four earned runs.
I see a pretty big difference in him, Royals manager Ned Yost said of Skoglund’s confidence level. Last year this was all new and big and quick for him up here. In spring training, you could tell the game has slowed down, that he’s got a lot Marcell Ozuna Youth jersey more confidence in his ability. I’m hoping for the best for him tomorrow with the weather the way that it is.
