Reports: Packers QB Coach Ben McAdoo To Interview For Giants’ OC Position
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Green Bay Packers quarterbacks coach Ben McAdoo will interview to be the Giants’ offensive coordinator this weekend, according to multiple reports.
Prior to being named quarterbacks coach, McAdoo was the tight-ends coach in Green Bay for six seasons. He has also served as an offensive assistant/quality-control coach for the New Orleans Saints and an assistant offensive-line/quality-control coach for the San Francisco 49ers.
According to NJ.com, McAdoo interviewed for the Browns’ head-coaching job this week.
Big Blue interviewed Dowell Loggains on Wednesday, according to reports. Loggains, the former offensive coordinator of the Tennessee Titans, was fired when head coach Mike Munchak was relieved of his duties last week.
Mike Sullivan also interviewed on Wednesday. Sullivan, unlike the other candidates in the running, has a strong history with the organization.
The 46-year-old was the Giants’ wide-receivers coach from 2004-2009 before being promoted to quarterbacks coach in 2010. Following the 2011 season he was hired as the Buccaneers’ offensive coordinator. The West Point alum was fired on December 30.
In addition to working under head coach Tom Coughlin from 2004-2011 in East Rutherford, Sullivan also worked under Coughlin in 2002 as a quality-control assistant with the Jaguars.
“We obviously think very highly of him,” Giants owner John Mara said recently in regard to Sullivan.
The position is vacant after longtime coordinator Kevin Gilbride retired last week. Gilbride had been the Giants’ OC since 2007.
The G-Men had a difficult time scoring this past season. The team finished 28th in the NFL in total points — with just 294 — and 28th in yards.
