McDaniels Agent Cut's Ties With Client After Criticizing Colts Decision

"In 31 cities, I'd say the odds of them hiring him (as head coach) would be slim to none", the 61-year-old Weis said.

While the Indianapolis Colts attempt to figure out what to do at head coach now that Josh McDaniels has chose to stick with the New England Patriots, the team may have another issue on their hands when it comes to Andrew Luck at quarterback. McDaniels clearly wasn't sold on the job, and now Indianapolis can find someone who will be.

Colts general manager Chis Ballard showed up for a news conference Wednesday - just not the one he expected.

Folks in Boston are as curious as Colts fans as to why he spurned the team and what he might have been promised to stay in New England. "Thank you", he said, although he added that "I'm fine" when asked how he was feeling. There may have been some assurances that McDaniels will become the Patriots' next head coach once Bill Belichick retires.

The Patriots have won seven consecutive games against the Colts, including twice in the playoffs, and they've outscored their former AFC East foes during that stretch, 285-152. Maybe Ballard felt the need to say something in hopes of breathing life into a team that went from Super Bowl contenders to perennial doormats for the rest of league.

"We'll move forward with them and we will get the right leader for the Indianapolis Colts - one that believes what we believe and wants to go where we want to go". It seems like he'd be a good fit to work with Andrew Luck, as long as Luck is healthy. An introductory press conference was scheduled for Wednesday afternoon - but canceled.

LaMonte, who is also Ballard's agent, has terminated his relationship with McDaniels, according to sources.

ESPN reported that LaMonte told McDaniels he would be "committing professional suicide" by breaking the Indianapolis agreement.

"In a normal world you would assume that, but again, are we living in a normal world right now?"

"I think he learned a lot from his time in Denver", Tebow said.

McDaniels had agreed to contract terms with the Colts to replace the fired Chuck Pagano.

Three assistant coaches - Matt Eberflus, Mike Phair and Dave DeGuglielmo - had already been hired in Indy.
