Former Giants head coach Ben McAdoo has been named the next quarterbacks coach of the Jaguars, ESPN's Jordan Raanan reported Tuesday night.
This upcoming season will be now McAdoo's first time on an NFL sideline since 2017.
Last month, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, McAdoo met with the Jaguars about their offensive coordinator position, after Jacksonville fired former OC John DeFilippo after one year with the team. But instead McAdoo will just focus on the quarterbacks, as former Redskins head coach Jay Gruden was named OC a few weeks ago.
McAdoo was the Giants' offensive coordinator from 2014-2015 before being promoted to head coach for two seasons after the organization moved on from Tom Coughlin.
As OC, the Giants had Top 10 offenses, including a Top-6 scoring offense in 2015, before leading New York to the playoffs after an 11-5 season in 2016 as head couch.
However things fell apart in 2017. The Giants went just 3-13, and after McAdoo upset just about every person and fan associated with the Giants when he ended Eli Manning's 210 straight game starting streak by benching him for Geno Smith, he was fired after Week 14 -- along with general manager Jerry Reese.
