The Jacksonville Jaguars hired former New York Giants head coach Ben McAdoo as their quarterbacks coach, the team announced.

McAdoo was fired in 2017 after two years leading the Giants, and he's been out of football for the last two campaigns.

Jacksonville interviewed the 42-year-old for its offensive coordinator position in January before hiring Jay Gruden.

McAdoo's tenure in New York was mired with controversy, most notably following his decision to bench Eli Manning for Geno Smith late in 2017 before re-inserting Manning into the lineup a week later.

He'll coach quarterbacks for the second time in his career after spending the 2012 and 2013 seasons tutoring Aaron Rodgers while with the Green Bay Packers.
