Ben McAdoo to interview for Miami Dolphins OC job

In the middle of their search for a new general manager, the Miami Dolphins are on a parallel prowl for a play-caller to replace the fired Mike Sherman.

The team has set its sights on Green Bay Packers quarterback coach Ben McAdoo, who will interview Tuesday for the vacant offensive coordinator role, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport was told by a source informed of the search.

McAdoo has generated interest this winter, speaking with the New York Giants about their OC opening and meeting earlier this month with the Cleveland Browns about their still-empty head coaching slot.

Philadelphia Eagles quarterbacks coach Bill Lazor also sits on the radar for the Dolphins job, but The Miami Herald reported last week that McAdoo is the favorite to replace Sherman after talking with a source who said: "Good coach, players like him."

One of those players is Packers star signal-caller Aaron Rodgers, who gushed over his position coach earlier this month. Those words echoed Mike McCarthy's praise for McAdoo, as the Green Bay coach lauded his assistant as ready for whatever opportunity might come next.
