Don’t expect to see Tim Tebow in the XFL when the league launches in 2020.

The former Florida and NFL quarterback said Wednesday he’s focused more on getting ready for spring training with the Mets later this month and hasn’t paid any attention to the XFL’s pending rebirth.

“To be honest, I really haven’t given it any thought,” Tebow told SEC Country. “I’ve got too many important things going on, and I’m getting ready for spring training in slightly over a week.

Is that enough for the Patriots? Not right now, but watch closely how New England adjusts with two new coordinators. The Patriots won three Super Bowls with the Charlie Weis-Romeo Crennel combination from 2001 to 2004. It took a decade to win another one with the combination of McDaniels and Patricia, and the decade in between saw instability at both of those coaching positions. With Belichick and Brady a lot older now, that would seemingly be the only possible crack as of now.

New England will be listed among the top Super Bowl favorites as long as those two are together. Philadelphia’s victory in Super Bowl 52 didn’t kill this dynasty, but somebody from the AFC could take the next step in ending the Belichick-Brady era.

According to ESPN, Belichick went to McDaniels and offered him more exposure to the inner workings of the franchise. He reportedly will let McDaniels in on the team’s salary cap and roster management in the coming season, which was very important to McDaniels.

In addition, New England offered McDaniels an extension which would allow him to keep his four children at the same school for an extended period of time.

While the team did not make McDaniels the coach-in-waiting for the Patriots, much of what was offered to him was done under the assumption that it was part of a succession plan for the future.

McDaniels may not be the Patriots’ coach when Bill Belichick retires, but this is the step to take to give him the chance to be hired when the opportunity arises.

That didn’t keep the UCLA quarterback from getting nostalgic about his grandmother’s favorite team winning Super Bowl 52.nike-youth-cardinals-027
