NFL: Ben McAdoo is close to being signed on as the Giants new coach replacing Tom Coughlin. McAdoo is the offensive coordinator of the Giants and if he gets the promotion to head coach he is expected to be able to keep defensive genius Steve Spagnolo as defensive coordinator and is expected to bring former Dolphins coach Joe Philbin in as the offensive coordinator. The belief is because Philbin and McAdoo worked together in Green Bay under Mike McCarthy.
