It's the end of the NFL season, which means head-coaching jobs opening up and rumors circulating of who might be in the mix to replace them. Even after what happened last season with Josh McDaniels burning the Colts, his name continues to come up. 

Appearing on Mut & Callahan Friday morning, NFL Media's Ian Rapoport detailed what he thinks will happen with him after the season.

“I would say that it is likely his name comes up and it is likely he gets an interview request," he said. "I know this sounds crazy, especially if you go back to last year when he was public enemy No. 1 not just in Indianapolis, but I know there were a lot of people frustrated around the league when they heard what he did, which was accept the job, essentially hire three coaches, be about to be announced the next day and then turn it down. Obviously, it is his choice and you need to do what is best for you and your family, but I know that there were other coaches that were obviously not happy about it. But, he’s still a very good coach.

"There are not a lot of really good assistant coaches, especially ones with head-coaching experience. The NFL has a very short memory. I do expect him to get requested. My guess is he will probably accept one or two, or maybe more interviews and then we’ll see what happens when he gets down the line. He has, I believe each of the last four years withdrawn, so I don’t know what he is going to do ultimately, but I do believe he’s going to get chances.”
