New York Giants offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo said last week that it would be "selfish" to think about his coaching future since the Giants still had a game to play. Well, that game is over and now McAdoo has some things to think about. One of those is apparently the Philadelphia Eagles vacant head-coaching position.

McAdoo is reportedly one of several candidates the Eagles are considering to replace the fired Chip Kelly.

McAdoo, of course, would be considered a leading candidate should Tom Coughlin resign or be removed as head coach of the Giants. McAdoo has been Giants' offensive coordinator for two seasons and is widely credited with helping Eli Manning get his career back on track.

There is no indication whether the 38-year-old McAdoo will interview for the Philadelphia job, or how serious the Eagles are about McAdoo. It may serve as a warning to the Giants, though. If they see McAdoo as a successor to Coughlin they may ned to move sooner rather than later to make that happen.

With openings popping up around the league this is probably not the only time McAdoo's name will come up.
