McDaniels keeps it in the Family

By jcfortun Published: January 22, 2009

Denver Broncos head coach Josh McDaniels, a Canton McKinley graduate, is wasting little time hiring his new coaching staff and he is sticking to some names that he knows; McDaniels, to be precise.

Josh McDaniels, 32, just hired younger brother Ben, 28, as an offensive assistant. Ben McDaniels was, like Josh, a quarterback at McKinley. Ben went on to play quarterback at Kent State before becoming a graduate assistant for Glen Mason at Minnesota.

Most recently, Ben was on the sidelines with father Thom McDaniels at Massillon Jackson High School. Ben was a quarterbacks coach there.

Thom McDaniels recently resigned from coaching at Jackson. Could he be following the recent family tradition to Denver as well?
