Josh McDaniels may have been a dud as coach of the Denver Broncos, but he's apparently still considered a hot commodity by some NFL teams.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported in Tuesday that the St. Louis Rams hired the maligned former Broncos be to be their offensive coordinator.

The Seattle Seahawks had also reportedly been very interested in signing McDaniels.

"We are happy to announce that Josh will be a part of our staff," Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo said in a statement. "I've always recognized that he is one of the top offensive minds in the NFL. We think he is a great addition to our organization."

McDaniels, still just 34 years old, was fired by the Broncos in early December after starting the 2010 season 3-9, and becoming embroiled in a videotaping scandal during which the team was accused if spying on an opponent.

Prior to joining the Broncos, McDaniels earned a solid reputation as an offensive coordinator for the New England Patriots. In St. Louis, he will work with one of the most highly-touted young quarterbacks in the NFL in Sam Bradford.
