Former New York Giants head coach Ben McAdoo, looking to get back into the league and begin rebuilding his shattered reputation, is a candidate to become offensive coordinator for the Cleveland Browns.

McAdoo reportedly interviewed with the Browns on Tuesday. New Cleveland GM John Dorsey is familiar with McAdoo as both were together with the Green Bay Packers from 2006-2012.

The Giants’ offense was far better during McAdoo’s two seasons as offensive coordinator, 23.8 points per game in 2014 and 26.2 points per game in 2015, than with him as head coach. The Giants were 31st in the NFL is scoring last season at 15.4 points per game. The Browns, at 14.6 points per game, were the only team worse.
