MIAMI (AP) — The Miami Dolphins interviewed Green Bay Packers quarterbacks coach Ben McAdoo about becoming their offensive coordinator soon before he was hired by the New York Giants.
The Giants announced Tuesday night that he was their new offensive coordinator.
McAdoo had been with Green Bay for eight seasons and spent his first six years there as tight ends coach. Last week he interviewed for the Cleveland Browns' head coaching job.
McAdoo had been endorsed by Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and coach Mike McCarthy.
Former Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan and Philadelphia Eagles quarterbacks coach Bill Lazor earlier interviewed with the Dolphins, who fired Mike Sherman last week after he spent two seasons with the team.
