Josh McDaniels, Mike Vrabel Emerge As Top Candidates For Colts Job

Josh McDaniels, Mike Vrabel Emerge As Top Candidates For Colts Job

That focus on offense first and foremost could be to New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels' advantage as he might ultimately emerge as the Colts' leading candidate. Offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels is the favorite to land the Indianapolis Colts' job, according to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport.

As mentioned in a catch-all item from Saturday that looked at the various lingering coaching vacancies, the Colts have whittled their list of potential coaches down to two.

But the potential hits to the Patriots coaching staff don't stop there.

The Colts franchise player could use much needed offensive continuity and an improved comfort zone, as he's already endured three offensive coordinators during his first six seasons in Indianapolis. He has begun arranging for a number of assistants to join him as his coordinators, including Cowboys linebacker coach Matt Eberflus who would be McDaniels top choice as a defensive coordinator.

Just because the Colts are expected to hire an offensive minded head coach doesn't mean they can ignore a woeful defensive unit that ranked 30th in most average points allowed per game this past season (25.2 avg. ppg).

Eberflus has nine years of experience in the National Football League, with the last seven being the Cowboys linebackers coach.

With the Patriots' blowout win over the Titans in the Divisional Round, the Colts will have to wait until New England's playoff run is over to officially hire him.
