The Indianapolis Colts officially named Josh McDaniels their new head coach Tuesday, putting to rest rumors McDaniels was planning on shafting the Colts and backing out of the offered coaching job.

But then, less than 12 hours after the Colts made the announcement, reports came in that McDaniels had indeed shafted the Colts and not accepted the head coaching job.

McDaniels was set to be announced as the new Colts head coach at a Wednesday press conference. 

The Colts released a statement via their website Tuesday evening: 

After agreeing to contract terms to become the Indianapolis Colts’ new head coach, New England Patriots assistant coach Josh McDaniels this evening informed us that he would not be joining our team. Although we are surprised and disappointed, we will resume our head coaching search immediately and find the right fit to lead our team and organization on and off the field.

The scheduled press conference at Lucas Oil Stadium will not take place tomorrow. More information will be forthcoming.
