Experience continues to be the watchword.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have hired former New York Giants head coach Ben McAdoo as quarterbacks coach.

When the team officially announced the signing Wednesday morning, Doug Marrone praised his new assistant's knowledge and experience, which he believes will help the quarterbacks on the roster tremendously heading forward. "He has mentored several great quarterbacks throughout his career, and his understanding of the position will be a valuable addition to our team and for the development of that group".

After nearly two years out of the league, McAdoo is being hired by the Jacksonville Jaguars as their next quarterbacks coach. Marrone earlier this offseason hired former Washington Redskins head coach and former Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden as offensive coordinator.

The Jaguars finished the 2019 season bottom of the AFC South with a 6-10 record. The Jaguars mutually parted ways following the season with DeFilippo, who is now the quarterbacks coach of the Chicago Bears.

McAdoo replaces Scott Milanovich, who left at the end of last season to take the head coaching job with the CFL's Edmonton Eskimos.

McAdoo last coached in the National Football League when he was the head coach of the Giants for less than two seasons before being fired in December of 2017. That followed an 11-5 play-off campaign in 2016. He also spent two seasons (2012-13) as Green Bay's quarterbacks coach and worked alongside Aaron Rodgers.

The Giants fired McAdoo late in the 2017 season.
