In 2009, McDaniels was hired as the head coach of the Denver Broncos.

McDaniels was fired by Denver after a 3-9 start in 2010. He spent the 2011 season as offensive coordinator of the St. Louis Rams, but was released by the Rams for the 2011-12 NFL playoffs to serve as an offensive assistant for the Patriots in their run to Super Bowl XLVI.
