Since the first of the year, the search has been on to find the next head coach for the team. But according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks doesn't appear to be high on their list of candidates as the Colts appear to be focusing their search toward more offensive-minded coaches.
Albert Breer of MMQB reports that offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels and Texans defensive coordinator Mike Vrabel, a former Patriots linebacker, have emerged as the top two candidates to become next head coach of the Indianapolis Colts.
Patricia and McDaniels have each been in their current positions with the team since 2012.
The Colts would have to wait to name McDaniels the head coach until after the Super Bowl if the Patriots are to win the AFC Conference Championship game.
Baylor head coach Matt Rhule made a surprise appearance getting an interview with the Colts' front office, but he pulled out of the running most likely after it became clear that he wouldn't get the job. In addition, the Colts already have an established quarterback in Andrew Luck, who missed all of last season due to a shoulder injury.
