Browns Meet With Ben McAdoo

On Friday, the Browns met with former Giants head coach Ben McAdoo at their team headquarters (Twitter link via Jake Trotter of ESPN.com). It’s not immediately clear whether McAdoo is a candidate for the team’s offensive coordinator position, or whether the Browns will be hiring an OC at all

I’m committed to adding the right people to our building,” new head coach Kevin Stefanski said recently. “That remains to be seen. We’re definitely looking at all avenues as we try to put a really good staff together.”

McAdoo’s run as the Giants’ head coach was a flop, but before all of that, he built a reputation as one of the league’s savvier offensive minds. McAdoo was a member of the Packers’ coaching staff in 2010, helping guide the team to a Super Bowl XLV victory. Then, as the Giants’ OC in 2014, he took the offense from No. 28 in scoring to No. 13. In 2015, they ranked sixth in the NFL in points, despite injuries to several key players.

Many say that McAdoo didn’t have the temperament to succeed as a head coach, but Stefanski & Co. may see him as an effective offensive coach that can aid in the team’s quest to turn things around. Despite all of their star power and hype, the Browns offense (and defense) fell short in 2019, posting a 6-10 record that led to the dismissal of first-year head coach Freddie Kitchens.

    Ben McAfool is a joke. Perfect fit for Cleveland. Let’s make it happen!

    And that didn’t take long for the first anti-Browns comment.

    Get a life.

    So basically he could have just dropped by Browns HQ to get directions to that new burger joint in town.

  4. Haha, McAdoo would be a quintessential Browns move. Clown franchise run by a buffoon.

      Just part of the due diligence most likely. We’ll know they are getting desperate when they ask Bernie Kosar if he has any free time to come in for an interview.

    Granted this regime has done nothing to give any hope in the last few years but why come one here if you’re just gonna post the same negative lame comments over and over again let the actual real fans discuss their thoughts, just like Kitchens McAdoo was a better OC than HC and has HC experience might not be a terrible hire

      Please tell me this is sarcasm. If so, we’ll done sir. If not, perhaps football isn’t the sport for you to follow.
