McDaniels, the offensive co-ordinator of the Patriots since 2012, heads to the Colts just a day after defensive co-ordinator Matt Patricia left to join the Detroit Lions. The departures, which had been long-expected, followed the Patriots' upset defeat to the Philadelphia Eagles in the Super Bowl on Sunday.
