Apparently, the hire comes from Browns Chief Strategy Officer Paul DePodesta, an Harvard stathead whose experience before the Browns was all in MLB. DePodesta also is on the Sears (as in Sears Roebuck) BOD.

I strongly dislike McDaniels, but if he wanted to leave this year, he should have gotten himself fired or quit rather than hang on to the hope that BB would "someday" turn over the reins. Hoodie already has said he won't be retiring anywhere near his 70th birthday. He just happens to need to use McDaniels to try to squeeze another year or two out of Old Man Brady so that when that fails, Hoodie won't be to blame.

He still believes that if he sticks around for one year, two more that magically a GOAT franchise is gonna get handed to him with all the powers that be. He was named as the presumptive HC of the Colts last year. If he'd just made that one decision in September to encourage Vinitieri to retire, put him on IR, whatever, they're in the playoffs with a QB he trained.
He had a chance to prove he was more than the failed authoritarian he was in Denver, and he just whiffed. It just makes McDaniels look weak, tethered to a one-trick pony show in Brady, waiting for a chance that won't come even if he squeezes one last playoff season with him.
