Josh McDaniels will be the offensive coordinator in 2012, but for now he's just an offensive assistant.
New England's current offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien will remain at his normal position Saturday night against the Denver Broncos, as he'll be calling the plays while McDaniels will be upstairs in the booth, according to sources.
There has been quite the uproar on how McDaniels was able to join New England's coaching staff a week ago despite spending all of 2011 as the St. Louis Rams offensive coordinator and from 2009-2010 as the Denver Broncos head coach.
Earlier this week during Tom Brady's weekly appearance on WEEI's Dennis and Callahan, he admitted to the morning crew that McDaniels does have some "inside information." However just a few days later, Denver's head coach John Fox downplayed Brady's comment and acknowledged that their offense is completely different.
This is one of the most anticipated playoff games in recent memory, as it has so many intriguing storylines. Whether it's Tom Brady vs. Tim Tebow, Bill Belichick vs. Tebow or even Tebow vs. the man who drafted him, Josh McDaniels.
All of those storylines are just building upon one another as kickoff is set at 8:00 PM at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Massachusetts.
