There’s a reason Ben McAdoo’s New York Giants offense looks so familiar; he’s a disciple of the school of Mike McCarthy. Before joining the Giants in 2014, McAdoo spent eight years in Green Bay, where he learned from McCarthy and helped shape Aaron Rodgers into a Super Bowl-winning quarterback.
For two years in New York, he served as offensive coordinator under longtime head coach Tom Coughlin. There, he discovered the disciplined approach that’s helped shape his current coaching style; a style that combines the best of both McCarthy and Coughlin’s teachings.
“I’m trying to blend the two experiences that really have shaped my professional career,” he said, per the Washington Post. “I’m trying to blend those two together and come up with the best mix for this organization.”
