Pat originally backed McDaniels right before he fired him. It's a weird series of events. He had an interview with AOL fanhouse about how he is sticking with McDaniels and giving him another season.
"I am not interested in making a change," Bowlen said.
OK, what about the 2011 season? Will McDaniels be back for it?
"Yes he will," Bowlen said. "I am not interested in making a coaching change."
He continues to defend McD through the whole article, and even mentions that there will probably be staff changes. What would have happened is Martindale would have been canned, and a lot of defensive coaches would have been fired and McD would have stayed.
Keep in mind, the above interview was a week before McDaniels was canned.
