Dilip Vishwanat/Getty Images(FOXBOROUGH) — After a four year hiatus, Josh McDaniels has rejoined the New England Patriots coaching staff.

The Patriots announced Sunday that McDaniels will join the team as an offensive assistant for the remainder of the season.

McDaniels originally joined the Pats in 2001 as a defensive coaching assistant.  In 2006, he became the Patriots offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach, a position he held until he left the team in 2008.

He was in charge of the offense during the Patriots record-breaking 2007 season. 

After he left, he became the head coach of the Denver Broncos for a season and a half. He may be best known in Denver as the man who drafted Tim Tebow. This season he served as the St. Louis Rams’ offensive coordinator.

McDaniels will be with the Patriots for their upcoming playoff game against the Broncos.
