New York Giants fans may find this hard to believe but there is an NFL team interested in adding former head coach Ben McAdoo to their coaching staff.

According to news reports, the Denver Broncos are interested in McAdoo for their soon-to-be vacant quarterback coach position. Current quarterbacks coach Klint Kubiak, son of former Broncos head coach and current Broncos senior personnel advisor Gary Kubiak, is going to be reassigned on head coach Vance Joseph’s offensive staff.

McAdoo, 40, began his NFL coaching career as an offensive quality control coordinator for the New Orleans Saints in 2004. This was followed by a stint as an offensive line coach and offensive quality control coordinator with the San Francisco 49ers in 2005.

He spent eight seasons with the Green Bay Packers (2006-13): six seasons as a tight ends coach and his final two seasons as a quarterbacks coach. McAdoo was a member of the coaching staff of the Packers team that defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV.

McAdoo joined the Giants in 2014 as offensive coordinator. The Giants improved from the 28th ranked offense to 13th in McAdoo’s first season. In his second and final season as offensive coordinator, the Giants offense improved from 13th to sixth. Quarterback Eli Manning had two of his best statistical seasons with McAdoo as offensive coordinator.

McAdoo succeeded Tom Coughlin as head coach in 2016. The Giants went 11-5 and made their first playoff appearance since winning Super Bowl XLVI. The team backslid in 2017 and McAdoo was fired with general manager Jerry Reese on Dec. 4. McAdoo’s record as head coach was 13-15.

McAdoo worked with Joseph in San Francisco. Joseph was an assistant defensive back coach on former 49ers head coach Mike Nolan’s staff.
