According to a NFL.com report, the Green Bay Packers blocked the Tampa
Bay Buccaneers’ request to interview Ben McAdoo for their offensive coordinator position.
McAdoo, the team’s tight ends coach, is considered the favorite to replace Tom Clements as quarterbacks coach. Clements was promoted to offensive coordinator last week by the Packers.
Aaron Rodgers, on his weekly radio show on WAUK-AM, said he hopes he’s in the loop on the decision as to who the next quarterbacks coach is in Green Bay.
Rodgers told the show’s host Jason Wilde, “Because I’m in my eighth season, it will be interesting to see what direction Mike McCarthy wants to go in, if he wants to bring in a former quarterback with experience to kind of help me with the transition into the middle part of my career a more of an established player in th e league now. I’m not sure what the dynamic would be with a coach who hasn’t coached the position before. But Ben is a very talented coach and if they do make that decision, I’m sure he will make a smooth transition.”
