McDaniels, however, found himself in the midst of an impromptu interview after an NBC10 Boston-area reporter knocked on the front door of his Westwood (Mass.) home.
"I love Patriot Nation," McDaniels said on Wednesday when asked for a comment.
The reporter attempted to ask a follow-up question before McDaniels put an end to the conversation.
"No, I'm not going to do any comments. Thank you," he said, although he added that "I'm fine" when asked how he was feeling.
"I can tell you there is NO excuse big enough to justify this," Dungy wrote on Twitter of McDaniels' decision to spurn the Colts in the 11th hour. "It's one thing to go back on your word to an organization. But having assistant coaches leave jobs to go with you then leave them out to dry is indefensible. For COMFORT??"
Weis was pretty clear with his assessment if McDaniels failed to receive a commitment from the Patriots.
"If he's not (the Patriots' next coach), then that would've been the absolute dumbest move in the history of sports," Weis said on SiriusXM.
Multiple outlets have reported that the Patriots haven't promised McDaniels their head coaching position when Bill Belichick opts to leave.
