    I think it is not possible. Because only admin can change blog post not admin who posted blog post. If you still want to do that, You will need to post article under another admin. Then remove them and transfer post into main admin. Just it.
    Thanks

    Do you want to add multiple authors to your blog? WordPress comes with a built-in user management system that allows you to add users with different roles and capabilities allowing you to add new users without worrying about the safety of your site. In this article, we will show you how to add new users and authors to your WordPress blog.

    if you want to change authors you can do it via your dashboard, to change a post author go to the post section on your dashboard and click on all posts, then choose the post you want to change and use quick edit to assign an author from the drop down menu and hit save, the post will now show that author
