REPORT: Giants Hire OC Ben McAdoo As New Head Coach

The New York Giants will promote offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo to head coach, replacing his former boss (Tom Coughlin).

Per Ian Rapoport of NFL Media:

According to Art Stapleton of The Record, the 38-year-old offensive coordinator was "an internal favorite from the start." He's been the team's offensive coordinator for the past two seasons, and the front office is reportedly looking to keep some sense of continuity alive in the wake of the franchise's parting with longtime HC Tom Coughlin.

New York was slated to interview Hue Jackson Thursday, but the former Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator filled the Cleveland Browns' opening on Wednesday morning.

Per several media reports, the Philadelphia Eagles were extremely high on McAdoo and may have been willing to proceed with him as their final hire.

However, the Eagles will have to go to Plan B or Plan C with McAdoo spoken for. Under McAdoo, the offense has posted back-to-back top ten finishes in total offense (#10, 2014 & #8, 2015).
