New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels is set to remove himself from consideration for the San Francisco 49ers head coaching gig, per a report from CBS Sports.
The San Francisco 49ers have one less person to consider for their head coaching vacancy.
New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels — whom many felt was a front-runner for the position — is apparently going to remove himself from consideration, according to a report from CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora.

Canfora announced the news Monday morning in a series of tweets, which can be seen below:
Huge news – Josh McDaniels very unlikely to take the 49ers job. Set to bow out from consideration and remain with the Patriots
This comes in the wake of a Mike Florio report, via Pro Football Talk, on Sunday night stating McDaniels was having second thoughts about taking the 49ers gig.
Doing so would mean going across the country and overseeing a team in complete rebuild. And with McDaniels’ history back in Denver with the Broncos, it’s unlikely he’d land a third head coaching job if things in Santa Clara didn’t go so well.
San Francisco has two other candidates in consideration with McDaniels out of the picture — Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan and Seattle Seahawks offensive line coach Tom Cable.
