No “McDaniels rule” coming

PALM BEACH, Fla. — Remember all the talk about how the Patriots used a loophole in the rules to hire Josh McDaniels as an offensive assistant — right before the team played the Broncos, his former team?

Well, the NFL didn’t apparently think it was very controversial.

Competition committee chairman Rich McKay said Monday that the situation — a fired or released assistant coach being hired by another team before the season was over — was discussed by the committee, but no rules change is coming.

“We didn’t think there was a rule change necessary with respect to that situation,” McKay said.
