The Giants have decided to hire Packers’ QB coach Ben McAdoo to be their new offensive coordinator (Giants).
“Working for a class organization like the Giants and a championship coach like Tom Coughlin, and being able to work with Eli Manning, who is a very talented and proven quarterback, is very exciting for me,” McAdoo said in a release. “We have a great opportunity in front of us and I can’t wait to get started.”
McAdoo, 36, spent six seasons in Green Bay as the tight ends coach before taking over as quarterback coach for the Packers in 2012.
Previously, McAdoo was with the San Francisco 49ers, where he served as as assistant offensive line/quality control coach in 2005.
“This is obviously a big step,” he said. “It’s also another step in the progression of a coach’s career. It’s a golden opportunity for me. It’s an opportunity I feel I’ve been groomed for. And I look forward to it.”
McAdoo had meetings with Miami and Cleveland this week, before the Giants inked him to a two-year deal as their new OC.
