According to Joe Person, new Panthers HC Matt Rhule has interviewed former Giants HC Ben McAdoo for a staff position and former Chargers coach Mike McCoy will interview for a job Thursday.
Person adds that both coaches are interviewing for the Panthers’ QBs coach job and it’s possible Rhule could add a passing game coordinator title.
McAdoo, 42, previously served as the Packers’ QBs coach before he was hired as the Giants’ offensive coordinator back in 2014 and eventually took over for HC Tom Coughlin two years later.
The Giants fired McAdoo towards the end of the 2017 regular season. The Cardinals showed interest in him last year for their offensive coordinator job.
During his two years in charge of the team, McAdoo led them to a record of 13-15 (46.4 percent), which includes a playoff appearance last year.
McCoy, 47, began his NFL coaching career with the Panthers back in 2000 as their quarterbacks coach. He spent nine years in Carolina before departing to take the Broncos’ offensive coordinator position in 2009.
After four years of running the Broncos’ offense, the Chargers hired him as their head coach before firing him after the 2016 season. The Broncos hired him as their offensive coordinator soon after but he was fired after one season.
The Cardinals gave him another shot at being their offensive coordinator under Steve Wilks, but he lasted just seven games.
During his four years in San Diego, McCoy led the Chargers to a record of 27-36 (42.9 percent), which includes one playoff appearance and a playoff win.
