Bounced from New York, Ben McAdoo might get a new opportunity with the Browns.

Former New York Giants head coach Ben McAdoo, who was sacked following Week 13 and replaced by Steve Spagnuolo, is generating a little interest around the league in a variety of roles.

Following a 0-16 season, Jackson said he was open to hiring a coordinator after doing that job over the past two seasons.

Jackson interviewed Texans quarterbacks coach Sean Ryan on January 10. McAdoo went 13-15 in two seasons as head coach with the Giants. McAdoo went 11-5 in 2016, but things unraveled for him after he demoted Manning, a two-time Super Bowl champion.

The Giants fired McAdoo in the midst of a miserable 2017 season.

Jackson, who has overhauled his offensive staff, previously met with Houston quarterbacks coach Sean Ryan about the coordinator's position. Prior to that, the 40-year-old McAdoo served as the Packers' tight ends and quarterbacks coach and had ties in Green Bay with new Browns general manager John Dorsey. He hired Adam Henry to coach wide receivers last week.

Cabot reports that in addition to McAdoo, the Browns are also looking at former Titans coach Mike Mularkey to be the new offensive coordinator.

Although McAdoo struggled as a head coach and watched his offense falter over his 28 games as the lead man, there was a significant level of success found during his time as the team's offensive coordinator.
