Former Rams offensive chief Pat Shurmur left St. Louis last week to become the Cleveland Browns' new head coach.
McDaniels was the New England Patriots' offensive coordinator from 2006 to 2008, leaving that position in January 2009 to succeed Mike Shanahan as Broncos head coach.
Denver fired McDaniels last month after the team stumbled to a 3-9 start. Denver last week hired John Fox as the permanent replacement for McDaniels.
