Former Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels was fired by the Broncos Monday less than two seasons into his tenure as head coach. The team announced the decision via its Twitter feed. McDaniels won his first six games as Broncos coach, but the team went 2-8 to finish the 2009 season and was 3-9 this season culminating in a loss to the Chiefs, Sunday.
McDaniels served as a Patriots assistant coach from 2001-08 and was the team's offensive coordinator his last three seasons in New England. Under McDaniels, the Patriots set numerous offensive records in 2007 and was he credited with helping Matt Cassel have a succcessful year replacing an injured Tom Brady.

The Sayabec, Quebec native was selected by the Bruins in the first round (25th overall) of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.

That, in turn, would seem to spell the end of Beltre's time with the Red Sox.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- Speaking at the winter meetings at the Dolphin Resort Hotel, San Diego manager Bud Black lamented the loss of Adrian Gonzalez to the Red Sox but said that his team would be ready for life without the first baseman, with the hope that the minor-leaguers the Padres got in return could help sooner than later.
"I don't know if it's going to be difficult, but it's going to be a challenge," Black said. "I think we're going to up for it." The manager later added regarding Casey Kelly, Anthony Rizzo, and Reymond Fuentes, "They're young with a lot of potential and I think they're probably closer to the big leagues than a lot of people think, for what I'm hearing." Black also said executing the trade gives his organization some "clarity where we need to go and get players."
