NFC East Watch: Giants Get a New Offensive Coordinator

Ben McAdoo has spent the past six seasons as an assistant with the Packers



    The New York Giants have a new offensive coordinator.

    Per Dan Graziano of, the team announced the hiring of longtime Packers assistant Ben McAdoo on Tuesday, a day after he interviewed for the position left vacant by the retirement of Kevin Gilbride.

    Gilbride retired back on January 2 after seven seasons as offensive coordinator under head coach Tom Coughlin, and ten seasons total with the Giants.

    McAdoo spent the past two years as quarterbacks coach with the Green Bay Packers and, before that, he spent four years as the team’s tight ends coach. He also served as an assistant for the San Francisco 49ers in 2004 and the New Orleans Saints in 2005--and in both of these stops, he worked with Mike McCarthy, now the head coach in Green Bay.

    The Giants finished 28th in the league in both scoring and total offense in 2013. In terms of points scored, only the Jets, Buccaneers, Texans and Jaguars scored fewer.
