49ers will meet with Patriots OC Josh McDaniels this weekend

The San Francisco 49ers are among the teams that are interested in New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels. Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that the team will meet with McDaniels this weekend. The meeting will reportedly take place back east as the Patriots are preparing for a playoff run.


McDaniels is expected to garner a lot of interest from teams with head coach vacancies this offseason. He can interview with teams because the Patriots will have a bye week as they await an opponent from the Wildcard round on the AFC side of the playoffs.

McDaniels moving into a head coaching role could take some time because the Patriots are favorites on the AFC side to reach the Super Bowl, which means that he would be unable to begin assembling his staff until after New England is done with postseason play. That late start may concern some teams, but McDaniels' name has been mentioned as a hot commodity over the past few years and he is expected to accept a head coach job this year.

McDaniels has head coaching experience having served in the role with the Denver Broncos from 2009 until 2010. He has had two stints with the Patriots as their offensive coordinator. The first was from 2006 until 2008. The second was after the Patriots hired McDaniels to act as an offensive assistant during their 2011 season playoff run. He replaced offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien in 2012 and has been with the Patriots since.

Prior to that, McDaniels was the offensive coordinator of the St. Louis Rams in 2011.

Update:

Mark Maske of the Washington Post reports that McDaniels' interviews with the 49ers, Rams, and Jaguars will take place on Saturday.

The San Francisco 49ers are heading back to the playoffs for the first time since their 2019 Super Bowl run after a thrilling Week 18 overtime victory against the NFC West champion Los Angeles Rams. The 49ers were a 13-3 powerhouse in 2019, earning the #1 seed and a first-round bye, but this 2021 version, a 10-game winner and the 6th seed, may actually be better positioned to win it all than the 2019 squad. Let's compare the offensive position groups from each season to see who has the edge.

49ers Notebook: Could 49ers mark end of the road for Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady? Arik Armstead the baller; Deebo's big run; Outcome never in doubt?

There's a lot to unpack from Saturday night's memorable 13-10 win for the San Francisco 49ers over the Green Bay Packers, but some of the biggest news to surface since that game came to an end involves the legendary quarterback the 49ers faced in their latest playoff victory—and the one they could face next week. Keep in mind there are still a lot of unknowns here, including (as of Sunday morning) whether or not the 49ers will even get this opportunity when they battle in the NFC Championship next Sunday (6:40 p.m. ET/3:40 p.m. PT, FOX). But based on what Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said Saturday night to go with what's been reported about Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady over the past 24 hours, it's not incorrect to say the 49ers could conceivably be the team to
