Packers tight ends coach Ben McAdoo has been promoted to quarterbacks coach, according to NFL.com's Jason La Canfora. McAdoo has served as the Packers tight ends coach since 2006, when he came from San Francisco along with coach Mike McCarthy. McAdoo worked as assistant offensive line coach and quality control as McCarthy was the 49ers offensive coordinator at the time. The two also worked together in New Orleans, where both held the same titles. McAdoo replaces Tom Clements, who was promoted to offensive coordinator after Joe Philbin took the top job in Miami. He, reportedly, was blocked from interviewing with Tampa Bay and Miami for their offensive coordinator opening. McAdoo has worked with Packers tight end Jermichael Finley wince he was drafted in the third round of the 2008 draft. Finley has developed into one of the league's best young tight ends in four seasons. He set season-highs in receptions (55), yardage (767) and touchdowns (8) in 2011.
