Report: Patriots hire Ben McAdoo as offensive assistant coach

The New England Patriots hired former New York Giants coach Ben McAdoo on Tuesday, per NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo.

Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer reported the Patriots were working on a deal, but according to Garafolo, it has been finalized to bring McAdoo in as an offensive assistant. There are organizational ties to this move with McAdoo and newly-hired offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt having worked in Green Bay with Patriots executive Eliot Wolf.

McAdoo is most remembered for his 2016-2017 run with the Giants. He compiled a 13-15 overall record, including an 11-5 mark in 2016.

Things are finally beginning to fall into place for the Patriots’ coaching staff. McAdoo should aid Van Pelt as an additional voice on the offensive side. Through a collaborative effort, there’s hope the Patriots can finally turn things around in 2024.
