Cleveland Browns are ready to interview Green Bay Packers quarterbacks coach Ben McAdoo for their vacant head coach position, reports

McAdoo has been linked with a host of different positions in recent weeks, after his contract in Mike McCarthy's coaching set-up at Lambeau Field expired.

Miami Dolphins were believed to be interested in speaking to McAdoo about their vacant offensive coordinator position, which would see him reunited with former Packers offensive coordinator Joe Philbin.

The 36-year-old currently has no coordinating or assistant coaching experience on his CV, so it comes as a bit of a surprise that the Browns have scheduled talks with McAdoo on Wednesday.

However, CEO Joe Banner does have a history for shock appointments, following his input in the Philadelphia Eagles' approach for Andy Reid back in 1999.

Reid - himself a Packers quarterback coach at the time - was interviewed and announced as head coach in an unprecedented move that year, and went on to lead the Eagles to five NFC Championship Games and the Super Bowl in 2004.
