Miami Dolphins are targeting Ben McAdoo as their next OC

Ben McAdoo, the man behind Aaron Rodgers could be the next offensive coordinator for the Miami Dolphins.

At this point it sounds like Ben McAdoo will get the OC job if he accepts it. He’s receiving interest from other teams though.

McAdoo was appointed to his current position on Feb. 13, 2012, by Head Coach Mike McCarthy, as part of a series of staff changes on the offensive side of the ball that came in the aftermath of former coordinator Joe Philbin being named head coach of the Miami Dolphins. In his current role, McAdoo works closely with three-time Pro Bowl QB Aaron Rodgers, who is entering his sixth season as the franchise’s starter under center.

Following his near-unanimous selection as the NFL’s Most Valuable Player in 2011, Rodgers continued to flourish under McAdoo’s direction in 2012. He was once again voted the Pro Bowl starter for the NFC after completing 371 of 552 attempts for 4,295 yards with 39 TDs against just eight INTs and leading the league in passer rating for the second consecutive season (108.0).

Maybe most impressive was that Rodgers maintained his remarkable level of play in the face of seemingly constant injuries and lineup shuffling on the offensive side of the ball. Throughout the season, he captained an offense that saw five different players start at running back, five different offensive line combinations and the loss of top targets Greg Jennings and Jordy Nelson for a combined 12 games and extended parts of others. Despite the lack of continuity around him, he managed to guide the league’s No. 5-ranked scoring offense (27.1 ppg.), while also ranking second in the NFL in touchdown passes and third in completion percentage (67.2).
