Following rumor after rumor over the last few days, Josh McDaniels is officially the new head coach of the Colts.
And apparently he's bringing a New England staffer with him: Patriots assistant quarterback coach Jerry Schuplinski is expected to join McDaniels' staff in Indy, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Tuesday, citing a source. Philadelphia won that game, beating Vince Lombardi and Bart Starr, and repeated history on Sunday by beating the New England Patriots with Tom Brady and Bill Belichick.
McDaniels will be formally introduced by the Colts during a news conference Wednesday.
This is McDaniels second run as a head coach, having gone from being a superstar coordinator with the Patriots to the Broncos, where he flamed out after a hot start with Denver as a coach with a lot of personnel power.
This would be his first head coaching job.

McDaniels was hired to coach the Denver Broncos in 2009, but was sacked mid-way through the 2010 season after accumulating an 11-17 record.
The Colts will hope McDaniels can have similar success with Andrew Luck, who was sidelined with a shoulder injury for the entire 2017 season.
"I'm not going to talk about that tonight", McDaniels snapped at reporters.
It will be interesting to see how this hiring affects an offseason that Colts fans have been salivating over since before this past season even began. He spent the 2011 season as an offensive coordinator in St. Louis before returning to the Patriots.
The Colts, mostly because of Luck, were able to maneuver and land McDaniels after he became a hot commodity again. In a year where the Colts have no need for the one position-quarterback-that so many other teams are desperate for, it makes too much sense not to happen. That's lead to speculation that he might stick around and become Belichick's eventual replacement, whenever the head coach decides to step down.
