CLEVELAND (AP) - A person familiar with the matter says the Cleveland Browns will interview Green Bay quarterbacks coach Ben McAdoo about their head coaching job.

McAdoo, who spent the past two seasons working with star QB Aaron Rodgers, will meet with the Browns this week.

The person who spoke on condition of anonymity because the team is not publicizing information about the search.The interview was also reported by the NFL Network and Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Browns CEO Joe Banner has had success in hiring a Packers assistant in the past. He plucked a young Andy Reid off Green Bay's staff and hired as Philadelphia's coach in 1999.

The 36-year-old McAdoo will be the fourth known candidate to interview with the Browns, looking for their seventh full-time coach since 1999. The team has interviewed New England offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, Seattle defensive coordinator Dan Quinn and Arizona defensive coordinator Todd Bowles.
