Who is Laura McDaniels?
Laura Michelle Johncock was born in Parma, Ohio USA, on 27 July 1977, so under the zodiac sign of Leo and holding American nationality. She came into the spotlight after she married popular football coach Josh McDaniels.
Early life and education
Laura is one of those people who prefer to keep their personal matters to themselves even though the media wanted to know more about her background story – she grew up with her parents Ronald and Marie Johncock and her younger brother Michael. She matriculated from the Valley Forge High School in Parma, Ohio, but it’s not known whether or not she attended college.
There is not much known about Laura’s career as it is in the shade of Josh’s coaching career – she is said to be working at the Cooley Medical Equipment store.
Personal life and marriage
Laura and Josh met each other for the first time in 2000 when they were both working for Fibertech, which is a plastics company based in Cleveland in Ohio. They fell for each other almost immediately and exchanged their vows two years later – during the years Laura has given birth to their four children, named Neenah, Livi, Maddie and Jack.
One of the things which Laura likes the most about her husband is the fact that he is able to focus on their children, even when his job is stressing him out – ‘This line of work can swallow you up. But when he’s with the kids, he can stop what he’s doing and talk about the school dance. That wasn’t easy for him. He’s worked on it and still is working on it. I think he has changed’. The two are currently living together with their kids in Westwood, Massachusetts, having previously in St. Louis, Missouri, and Denver, Colorado.
Laura is very supportive of her husband’s football career and is always there when he needs her – she has attended many of his games including the 2017 Super Bowl 51 game in Houston, when the Patriots (Josh’s team) faced the Falcons – the Patriots won 34-28.
Who is Josh McDaniels?
Josh was born in Barberton, Ohio USA on 22 April 1976, so under the zodiac sign of Taurus – he is one year older than Laura and is known for being a football coach of the New England Patriots in the National Football League (NFL).
Josh’s father is Thom McDaniels who is a retired Ohio High School football coach – he was named the High School Coach of the Year in 1997 by the “USA Today” newspapers and is considered to be a legend of the Ohio High School football. Josh is said to have inherited the passion towards football from his father who had been coaching him during his early years.
Josh was recruited for the first time by Greg Debeljak, football coach at Canton McKinley High School – he went on to attend John Carroll University for which he played football as a wide receiver from 1995 to 1998. In 1999, he launched his coaching career when he got the job of a senior graduate assistant at Michigan State University under the supervision of Nick Saban who was a big friend of his dad. After he worked for a while there, he went to live in Cleveland and started working at a plastics factory, where he met Laura for the first time.
Josh knew that he was going to go back to football eventually, and became part of the Patriots in 2001 – for the first two years he worked as their defense coach, then in 2004 he became a quarterback coach and after their offensive coach left, and he officially became the offensive co-ordinator in 2006.
Thanks to Josh’s coaching skills, his team the Patriots managed to set an NFL season record by scoring 75 touchdowns and 589 points – because he was doing so well, people were sure that he was going to leave the team to chase a more serious job with another team. He stayed with the Patriots to the end of 2008, when he became the head coach of the Denver Broncos on 11 January 2009 and signed a four-year contract worth $8 million.
During their first season, the Broncos won six games in a row before losing four games and ending the season with an 8-8 score. Even though he signed with the Broncos for four years, after he ended the 2010 season with a 3-9 score, he was fired from the team.
On 18 January 2011, Josh was hired to be the offensive co-ordinator of the St. Louis Rams while their head coach was Steve Spagnuolo, who always considered Josh to be one of the best offensive coaches in the NFL.
In 2012, Josh went back to coach the Patriots, and became their head coach in 2014 – on 6 February 2018, he announced that he was signing with the Indianapolis Colts as their head coach, however, he changed his mind the same day and stayed with the Patriots. He was there during six Super Bowl Championships which the Patriots played.
It was rumored that a running back Peyton Hillis who Josh was coaching was hitting on Laura – although these were only rumors, some of the other players who Josh coached stated how it was pretty obvious what Peyton was doing. Because of that, Josh gave him less play time and eventually traded him out of the team and hired quarterback Brady Quinn.
Likes and hobbies
Laura’s biggest interest is Pilates and she has a Pilates studio in her house, a gift from her husband as he installed it shortly after they’ve moved to Massachusetts; it’s her favorite way of staying in shape as it combines yoga with strength training and can help you work on your abs and other parts of your body.
Laura is actively helping those who are struggling with breast cancer as well as those who fought the fight and won – it is rumored that she is sensitive about this because someone from her family was suffering from the same disease. In October 2015, Laura was part of an event organized by the New England Patriots Charitable Foundation to provide a ‘rest and relaxation’ day to breast cancer survivors – she and other volunteers were giving massages, manicure and advice in numerous fields to the survivors at Gillette Stadium. ‘I’m inspired. I’m motivated to do more. Each of their stories is very unique and heartwarming’, Laura said.

Laura is currently 41 years old. She has medium long blonde hair and brown eyes, but her height and weight are not known. According to authoritative sources, Laura and Josh’s net worth together is estimated to be over $6 million, and will likely rise as both of them are working hard.
Social media presence
Laura is not that active on social media platforms – she has an Instagram account which is followed by around 150 people while she posted 11 pictures, mostly of her children. Laura also has a Facebook account but is said to only accept requests from the people she knows – she runs her own website which is more of a blog, and on it you can read numerous articles about travelling, exercising, eating, and others.
