McGinnis said. "i felt back in 1999 I was in "The Twilight Zone" when I got into my auto to drive up to Halas Hall to find out what was going on and I turned onto WGN (radio) and it said, '11 o'clock, welcome Dave McGinnis, the next head coach of the Bears, ' and I'm Dave McGinnis and I'm driving the vehicle to the press conference". They had a plane going to pick you up to bring you to the press conference the next morning. Most organizations like to have their coaches sign in the early weeks of January, but now it's February and the Colts are in the same position they were in a month ago, and they need to act fast.
"We will get the right leader for the Indianapolis Colts, one that believes what we believe and wants to go where we want to go", the GM said.
Ballard first got word from McDaniels on his hesitancy around 7:15 p.m. on Tuesday night.
"I feel very lucky to have Matt in the building running a scheme that I think fits our team that we can scout for and that fits our building", Ballard said.
Eberflus' presence indicates the expertise of the next head coach would be on offense.
Although some of us are bitter right now, we must be cognizant of something: Josh McDaniels has not even proven himself as a head coach yet. Ballard was adamant that these locked in assistants would not hinder possible head coaches from wanting to come to the Colts.
"The rivalry is back on", Ballard stated.
Nearly everyone they interviewed prior to settling on McDaniels has landed a head coaching job elsewhere or withdrawn their name to stay at a college job, but there are still some appealing candidates out there for the Colts to choose from at this late stage.
Belichick's reversal had the added element of it happening in front of reporters, and it quickly became famous for his hastily written resignation letter, which was reported to have said simply, "I resign as the HC of the NYJ". McDaniels again worked under his mentor Bill Belichick, whom he was an assistant for from 2001 until taking the Denver job. I mean, it's just unbelievable. For those anxious that Reich hasn't even called plays, Pederson didn't call plays under Andy Reid and in just two seasons with Philadelphia he is firmly among the top five or so coaches in the NFL.
"There's a lot of good coaches out there", Ballard said.

Schulz has also left his position as SPD chief, announcing he would hand over his role as party leader to Andrea Nahles. A deal to govern with Chancellor Angela Merkel's conservatives still has to be put to a vote of SPD members.
