We knew there were several teams interested in the services of Green Bay Packers quarterbacks coach Ben McAdoo and that list now includes the New York Giants.
The Giants plan to interview McAdoo for their vacant offensive coordinator job, providing he doesn’t get the head coaching job in Cleveland first. The Giants opening was created when Kevin Gilbride retired instead of letting the team fire him.
The Giants were dreadful offensively in 2013, finishing 28th in the league. Quarterback Eli Manning led the league with 27 interceptions. He threw only 18 touchdowns.
So, big job ahead for whoever takes it.
McAdoo is reportedly on the short list for the offensive coordinator’s job in Miami as well. Coach, and former Packers offensive coordinator, Joe Philbin canned his OC, Mike Sherman, earlier this week.
Miami is a much better situation because they have more talent (and almost made the playoffs this year), but have major issues protecting quarterback Ryan Tannehill. He was sacked a league-leading 58 times in 2013.
We’d be really surprised if McAdoo doesn’t end up with some sort of promotion in a new city this offseason. Aaron Rodgers has spoken glowingly of him and in addition to these openings, there are still four other teams without coaching staffs at all.
According to Rogers he was in charge of installing the Red Zone plays. Um… didn’t we struggle all year in the Red Zone?
I’m more worried about losing Alonzo Highsmith. Appears to be a candidate for Miami GM. I mean the brain drains in the Packers organization has been astounding.
Should all these stupid fucking teams be going after assistants in SF or SEA instead?
Sure, because SF and SEA have better offenses and QBs than GB.
The Pack should hire McAdoo for the offensive coordinator job.
