Josh McDaniels Hired As St. Louis Rams Offensive Coordinator

Scratch former Denver Broncos head coach Josh McDaniels off the list of candidates to replace Jeremy Bates as offensive coordinator of the Seattle Seahawks. After negotiations with the St. Louis Rams reportedly broke down on Tuesday morning, the deal is back on and McDaniels will become the Rams offensive coordinator. The announcement ends a few hours of whirlwind speculation surrounding McDaniels that included a link to Carroll and the Seahawks.

Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen reported the news on Twitter Tuesday afternoon.

We can likely deduce that McDaniels got more money in the contract negotiations after dangling his services in front of the Seahawks. The Rams wanted McDaniels from the start, and it seems likely they paid a premium to get him. With Sam Bradford running the offense, McDaniels has an excellent chance to strengthen his resume in St. Louis while developing a talented young quarterback.

With McDaniels out, the attention now turns to Jim Zorn, Jedd Fisch and others as Carroll searches to replace Bates. For the latest news, stay tuned to our Seahawks coaching search StoryStream.
