While speaking to reporters at the league’s owners’ meetings on Monday, former Washington Commanders’ coach Mike McDaniel made a joke about the Commanders as he was questioned about the sale of the team during his press conference in Arizona.
While many coaches never played themselves, the 40-year-old stands out because he did play college football as a wide receiver at Yale, where he received his history degree. His NFL coaching career began in 2005 as an intern for the Denver Broncos, although he never played for any notable NFL teams, however, he helped many teams achieve their desired victories through his guiding influence.
As the fourteenth head coach, Daniel led the Dolphins to a 20-7 victory. That was Mc’s first victory as a head coach. Since Nick Saban in 2005, MC is the first Dolphins head coach to have won his first game in charge of Miami, and he is the first head coach in franchise history to have done so in a season opener.
What did Mike McDaniel state in a press conference on his former team’ selling?
McDaniel was an assistant coach with the Commanders in 2010-13. Working alongside three other future head coaches, Kyle Shanahan, Sean McVay, and Matt LaFleur, Daniel began his coaching career with the Washington Redskins as an offensive assistant. Ike Hilliard, a wide receiver coach of Washington, left Commanders in 2013 to join the Buffalo Bills, and McDaniel was elevated to the position of wide receivers coach in his place.

Miami Dolphin’s coach was astounded by the team’s value because Washington was not a particularly expensive team at the time. In the conference he stated-
“I look at it like, ‘Wow, the organization’s worth that much?’ And I couldn’t get free coffee?”
Mike continued, “It’s a cool process because to me, I look at it less as you know, business is business; I look at it as the health of our league.”
He’s so unserious, I love him https://t.co/AAotNDsuIq
