Who should replace Patriots OC Josh McDaniels?

Following rumor after rumor over the last few days, Josh McDaniels is officially the new head coach of the Colts.

It appears McDaniels' Colts coaching staff is taking shape, as Indy reportedly has contracts in place with three new assistants: defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus, offensive line coach (and former Patriots assistant) Dave DeGuglielmo and defensive line coach Mike Phair.

McDaniels was widely expected to take a head coaching gig following the regular season, with different teams vying for his services. McDaniels left the Patriots in 2009 to become the head coach of the Denver Broncos. He was sacked in December 2010 after the underachieving and splintered Broncos posted an 11-17 record on his watch. The team made it official on Tuesday.
