The Ravens had requested permission to interview highly regarded Green Bay Packers quarterbacks coach Ben McAdoo for their offensive coordinator vacancy, according to a league source.
However, they won't be interviewing him because McAdoo is going to be hired as the New York Giants, according to a source close to McAdoo.
The Giants have now made it official, announcing the hire of McAdoo.
The Ravens' interest in McAdoo followed former offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell being hired as the Detroit Lions' head coach.
McAdoo interviewed Tuesday for the Miami Dolphins' offensive coordinator job and has previously interviewed with the Giants for their offensive coordinator opening.
McAdoo was the tight ends coach for six seasons in Green Bay before being shifted to quarterbacks coach in 2012 where he coached Pro Bowl quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
McAdoo worked with Packers coach Mike McCarthy during previous stints with the New Orleans Saints and San Francisco 49ers.
As the tight ends coach in Green Bay, McAdoo coached standout tight end Jermichael Finley.
**ESPN also reported Tuesday that Packers quarterbacks coach Ben McAdoo will interview with the Dolphins today for the offensive coordinator position.
McAdoo, who was the first name speculated when the Dolphins fired Mike Sherman, interviewed Monday with the Giants for their offensive coordinator job.
McAdoo worked under Dolphins coach Joe Philbin in Green Bay when Philbin was offensive coordinator.
The Dolphins previously interviewed Bill Lazor (Eagles QB coach) and Kyle Shanahan (former Redskins offensive coordinator).
