New York Giants Hire Ben McAdoo as New Offensive Coordinator
This will be McAdoo’s first job as an offensive coordinator. His name had been mentioned in talks for Miami’s offensive coordinator position, as well as the head coaching vacancy in Cleveland, but the Giants were able to snag him.
McAdoo had been with the Packers since 2006. He was their tight ends coach until 2012, when he took over as quarterbacks coach. Prior to the Packers, McAdoo’s NFL experience was limited to two assistant positions with the San Francisco 49ers and the New Orleans Saints. McAdoo worked under Mike McCarthy in San Francisco, as well as Green Bay.
McAdoo also has college experience under his belt as well. He’s worked with Michigan State, Fairfield, Pittsburgh, Akron and Stanford.
New York interviewed a total of four candidates for the vacant position. Former Giants assistant (and more recently offensive coordinator of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers) Mike Sullivan, former Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains and former Houston Texans quarterback coach Karl Dorrell all interviewed for the job.
Long-time New York Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride resigned after the offense struggled through a disaster of a season. Frustrations were evident and owner John Mara even went as far as to call the offense “broken.” A change at offensive coordinator surely won’t be the only change among the coaching staff this offseason.
