McAdoo has been with Packers head coach Mike McCarthy since entering the NFL coaching ranks, having for for McCarthy in New Orleans, San Francisco and now Green Bay.
Obviously, McCarthy trusts McAdoo and values his contribution. But the move to block him from interviewing is an interesting one in light of McCarthy's oft-stated belief in allowing for career advancement for members of his staff.
That said, this is the second time McCarthy has denied another team permission to interview a member of his offensive coaching staff, after he denied the Chicago Bears permission to interview Tom Clements for the offensive coordinator position that eventually went to Mike Martz.
In the case of the Bears, it was more than understandable for McCarthy to be reluctant to allow a division rival to take one of his better coaches. But denying non-divisional opponents from interviewing McAdoo probably indicates how valuable McCarthy thinks McAdoo's contributions are and that he sees a lot of potential in the 34 year old coach.
