Josh McDaniels is reportedly stealing away Patriots assistant to join him in Indianapolis


Josh McDaniels isn't the only former New England assistant heading to Indianapolis.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, former Patriots assistant quarterback coach Jerry Schuplinski will reportedly be joining McDaniels' Colts staff.

Schuplinski and McDaniels have a long history together dating back to their time at John Carroll University, as noted by ESPN's Mike Reiss.

The assistant was expected to be considered as a potential replacement for McDaniels as New England's offensive coordinator, but reports indicate that wide receiver coach Chad O'Shea will be promoted instead, according to Pro Football Talk.


Schuplinski joined the Patriots' staff in 2013 and has served as the team's assistant quarterbacks coach under McDaniels since 2016.

Additionally, New England special teams coach Joe Judge could also join McDaniels in Indianapolis, WEEI's Kirk Minihane reported on Monday.

The Patriots were defeated by the Philadelphia Eagles, 41-33, in Super Bowl LII on Sunday.
