- Albert Breer, citing multiple people close to the situation, reports that Patriots owner Robert Kraft was actually the driving force in keeping Josh McDaniels in Foxboro.
- While Bill Belichick and team president Jonathan Kraft were both involved, Breer says it’s his understanding that Kraft was the one who made sure McDaniels wasn’t going anywhere.
- Breer explains that Kraft likely looked around and same a team that could be year-to-year operation if Belichick and Brady retired and he ultimately made a decision to create some stability by keeping McDaniels in the fold.
