Patriots OC Josh McDaniels has come up a hot name in regards to coaching vacancies the past few years and figures to generate plenty of interest again next year.
However, McDaniels says he loves where he’s at and believes he has one of the “best jobs in the world.”
“I love where I’m at,” McDaniels told WEEI. “I’ve said before that I think we all have aspirations to grow and get better and improve and eventually move up and what have you. Who knows? Maybe that day happens, maybe it doesn’t. But I know this, is I’m really thankful I have the opportunity I have to coach the players that we have here, and to work underneath Bill and Robert [Kraft] and the Kraft family. It’s a privilege here. I feel like I have one of the best jobs in the world. I’m just thankful I have an opportunity to come here and do it each week. It’s a great honor to do that. Like I said, I enjoy it so much working with these guys here each week.”
