Cleveland Browns interview Ben McAdoo for offensive coordinator job

Cleveland Browns interview Ben McAdoo for offensive coordinator job

The Cleveland Browns plan to interview former New York Giants coach Ben McAdoo for the team's offensive coordinator position, multiple outlets reported Tuesday.

The 40-year-old McAdoo is meeting with general manager John Dorsey and Jackson, said the person who spoke on condition of anonymity because the team is not confirming any coaching interviews. McAdoo went 13-15 in two seasons as head coach with the Giants. But after going 0-16, Jackson said he was open to handing over play-calling duties and McAdoo has done that in the past.

The Browns are bringing in another candidate for the offensive coordinator job on Hue Jackson's staff. The move came less than a week after the benching of two-time Super Bowl MVP quarterback Eli Manning created a backlash from fans. While McAdoo previously served as the franchise's offensive coordinator before ultimately becoming the Giants head coach, it appears as though he could be reverting back to such a role. From 2006-2013, McAdoo was an assistant with the Green Bay Packers, coaching tight ends from 2006-11 and quarterbacks from 2012-2013. He hired Adam Henry to coach wide receivers last week.

Fired Titans coach Mike Mularkey also is on the radar for the offensive coordinator opening, a league source told cleveland.com.

Although McAdoo struggled as a head coach and watched his offense falter over his 28 games as the lead man, there was a significant level of success found during his time as the team's offensive coordinator.
