Packers QB Coach Ben McAdoo To Interview For Cleveland Browns Head Coach Job

A surprising report has surfaced that the Packers' quarterbacks coach will be interviewing for a head coaching vacancy.

In many circles, Green Bay Packers quarterbacks coach Ben McAdoo has been looked at as a potential candidate for a promotion. Rumors have swirled about McAdoo potentially being a candidate for several offensive coordinator openings, especially since former Packers coordinator and current Miami Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin just fired his offensive coordinator (who happened to be former Packer head coach Mike Sherman) on Monday.

One big surprise, though, would be McAdoo getting any interest as a head coach. However, that's apparently the job he's interviewing for in Cleveland this week:

That would be a huge shock if he would get the job, especially since McAdoo has not been a coordinator at any level. McAdoo was the Packers' tight ends coach under Mike McCarthy and was promoted to quarterbacks coach when Tom Clements took over as offensive coordinator prior to the 2012 season.

Note: Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel just confirmed Rapoport's original report. He also notes that a certain Packers assistant followed the same path on his way to a head coaching job over a decade ago:
