The Indianapolis Colts intend to hire Josh McDaniels as their head coach after Super Bowl LII, league sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter.
The Colts decided to offer the job to McDaniels after meeting Friday with the New England Patriots offensive coordinator to discuss shared long-term visions, sources told Schefter.
The missing element from the first meeting between the two sides was Colts owner Jim Irsay, who made the trip to New England with general manager Chris Ballard to participate in the second interview, league sources told ESPN's Chris Mortensen.
The NFL Network reported earlier this month that McDaniels was expected to accept the Colts' offer.
McDaniels, 41, will inherit a Colts team that went 4-12 and finished last in the AFC South in 2017 under Chuck Pagano.
