Former quarterback Tim Tebow is speaking out about his old coach Josh McDaniels amid controversy surrounding the New England Patriots offensive coordinator’s decision to turn down the head coaching position with the Indianapolis Colts.
After several rounds of interviews and an impressive showing in Super Bowl LII, the Indianapolis Colts announced McDaniels would be the new head coach of the team on Tuesday. But then, he changed his mind.
McDaniels shocked the NFL world when he rejected the Colts’ offer in favor of returning to Bill Belichick’s staff in New England. Many have criticized the move, saying it ruins McDaniels chances of ever being a head coach again, while others believe this makes him the heir apparent for Belichick’s position whenever he chooses to leave.
While Tebow said he didn’t fully understand what occurred with his former coach’s decision, he did take the opportunity to sing McDaniels’ praises.
