Mike Sliver of NFL Media is reporting that the Raiders are hiring Eagles QB coach Bill Musgrave as their new offensive coordinator.
- Silver adds that the Rams had considered bringing Musgrave in for an interview, but they chose not to pursue him.
ESPN’s Chris Mortensen (via Bill Williamson) reported this past weekend that Musgrave was a “hot contender” for the Raiders’ coordinator position.
Former Bears HC Marc Trestman and Broncos OC Adam Gase were both mentioned as possible options for the Raiders, but it appears as though Musgrave quickly became their guy.
This is the second year in a row that the Eagles have seen their quarterbacks coach leave for an offensive coordinator position, as Bill Lazor was hired by the Dolphins last year.
Musgrave actually began his career with the Raiders as their quarterbacks coach back in 1997. He held the offensive coordinator position with the Jaguars from 2003 to 2004 and was working in the same capacity for the Vikings from 2011 to 2013.
