We knew last week that Green Bay Packers quarterbacks coach Ben McAdoo had interviewed for the Cleveland Browns' head coaching job. We even found out that he had an interview scheduled for Saturday for the offensive coordinator opening with the New York Giants.
McAdoo now has a third job interview, this time with the Miami Dolphins and his old boss Joe Philbin:

For whatever reason, McAdoo's interview with the Giants was pushed back two days, but that shouldn't affect his candidacy for that job. What could affect it is today's interview with the Dolphins.
The Miami job, though, seems the most logical step for McAdoo. As the Packers' former tight ends coach when Philbin was the team's offensive coordinator, McAdoo had a working relationship with the Dolphins' head coach. His familiarity with the offensive mindset of his head coach would certainly not be in question.
In the "pure speculation" category, it may also be more appealing for McAdoo to work with a younger and potentially more malleable quarterback in Ryan Tannehill than a struggling veteran like Eli Manning.
It seems reasonable to expect that we'll know McAdoo's new job in the next few days.
