Browns interviewing Ben McAdoo for head coach position

New, comments

The early favorite for the Miami Dolphins vacant offensive coordinator position has been considered to be Green Bay Packers quarterbacks coach Ben McAdoo. However, the Cleveland Browns seem to have a bigger role in mind for McAdoo.

The Miami Dolphins are beginning a search for their next offensive coordinator following the firing of Mike Sherman yesterday. One of, if not the, early favorite for the position is Green Bay Packers quarterbacks coach Ben McAdoo, who worked with Miami head coach Joe Philbin when Philbin was the offensive coordinator for the Packers.

However, the Dolphins appear to not be the only team with an eye on McAdoo, and the other team may have a bigger role than Miami can provide.

It's an interesting move for the Cleveland Browns, who fired Rob Chudzinski after one year with the club, creating the current vacancy. Chudzinski was an assistant coach in the NFL, in his case with the Carolina Panthers, with no head coaching experience. The Browns fired him and are now chasing an NFL assistant coach with no head coaching experience. Chudzinski at least had been an offensive coordinator.

Not that the Browns are wrong in chasing McAdoo. He is one of the hot names in the coaching carousel this year. It's just a little surprising that the Browns could be willing to go down the same route that just imploded on them after one year. Either way, it looks like Philbin and the Dolphins will have to compete with at leaast one team offering a better position than Miami.
