Josh McDaniels stunned many people when he turned down the Colts' head coaching job last winter to stay on as Patriots offensive coordinator. But he reportedly had millions -- upon millions -- reasons to do so.

According to the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Patriots gave McDaniels a five-year contract -- which "never happens for a coordinator" -- at a yearly rate that "eclipses $4 million per year" at one point.

“From what I’m being told," Rapoport said Sunday on NFL Gameday, "he is being paid like a first-time head coach, the highest-paid coordinator in football by far."
