USA TODAY Sports — The Indianapolis Colts might not have their head coach after all.

New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels has withdrawn from the position, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter after his hiring was announced earlier Tuesday.

The Colts had scheduled a news conference at 4 p.m. ET on Wednesday for McDaniels to be introduced as coach.

McDaniels, 41, was in line for his second run as a head coach after leading the Denver Broncos from 2009-10. In his second stint with New England, he has served as the Patriots' offensive coordinator since 2012.

McDaniels was unable to accept a head coaching position until the Patriots finished their season, which ended Sunday with a 41-33 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LII.
