EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Green Bay Packers quarterback coach Ben McAdoo has been hired as the New York Giants offensive coordinator.

The Giants announced the hiring Tuesday evening after a quick two-week search.

McAdoo replaces Kevin Gilbride, who retired after a disappointing season where the offense underperformed. During his tenure as coordinator the Giants won two Super Bowls.

The Giants interviewed four candidates in their search. Former Giants quarterbacks coach and recent Tampa Bay offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan was considered the early favorite.

New York also interviewed former Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains and former Houston Texans quarterbacks coach and UCLA coach Karl Dorrell.
