Tom Coughlin explains decision to hire Ben McAdoo

Ben McAdooINDIANAPOLIS–Former Packers quarterbacks coach Ben McAdoo is the new offensive coordinator for the New York Giants, and Giants Head Coach Tom Coughlin spoke on Thursday of the process that brought McAdoo to the Giants.

“He’s a disciple of Mike McCarthy. I like Ben because he did a superb job in his preparation,” Coughlin said of his interview with McAdoo to replace long-time offensive guru Kevin Gilbride. The Giants are in the process of an offseason make-over, especially as it pertains to quarterback Eli Manning and the offense.

“He’s fundamentally sound,” Coughlin added of McAdoo. “He had detailed video on the way he teaches. He doesn’t describe himself as West Coast. He thinks more in terms of the ball going vertical down the field. We’re new in the development of where our program will go. It’s exciting.”

Manning experienced a disastrous season in 2013. The two-time Super Bowl champion reverted to rookie ways. Reclaiming Manning will be McAdoo’s No. 1 challenge.

“We’re confident Eli will return to the level of the high stature we hold him in. We’re excited about that part, too,” Coughlin said.

Coughlin was asked his opinion on a possible trend toward athletic, running quarterbacks.

“I don’t think anybody who’s made the second contract investment in their quarterback wants to put their quarterback in harm’s way. You still have to stand in the pocket and make plays,” Coughlin said.
