Giants widen OC search; Will interview Pack’s McAdoo

The Giants’ search for a new offensive coordinator is widening….From Rotoworld:

The Giants will interview Packers QBs coach Ben McAdoo for their offensive coordinator vacancy on Saturday.
McAdoo interviewed for the Browns’ head job Wednesday, but that was thought to be a token, information-gathering meeting. McAdoo is also in the Dolphins’ crosshairs, but will meet with the G-Men first. The Giants’ other two OC interviews have been with ex-Bucs OC Mike Sullivan and ex-Titans OC Dowell Loggains.

McAdoo comes in with a ringing endorsement from his current charge, Packers QB Aaron Rodgers. From PFT:

“I sent him a text,” Rodgers said on ESPN Wisconsin, via the Cleveland Plain Dealer. “I said, ‘Make sure you put me down as a reference.’ Just a little pro athlete joke there, but I’m happy for Ben. Any opportunities he gets, he deserves. He’s a guy that works extremely hard. We had a long talk yesterday, and I just continued to echo the things that I felt about him and appreciate about him.”

5 wides and let it fly. Be interesting to hear his take on why the GB offense played so well despite having a ton of injuries on their offensive line as well. I like this move. However, it's like others are saying, it's probably unlikely that anyone but Sullivan gets the job.

at least this guy is a little out of the box.  this team needs new ideas and schemes.   unfortunately, i have no doubt sullivan will be hired, though that it is a huge mistake.  of course eli and cruz and im sure every other offensive player wants him...he is gilbride part II.  the players wont have to learn a new playbook.  im sure sullivan will make some changes but for the most part it will be identical to gilbride.  this team has got to try and bring in a fresh face.
