Raiders Name Musgrave Offensive Coordinator

The Oakland Raiders announced on Monday night that they have hired Bill Musgrave to be the offensive coordinator under new head coach Jack Del Rio. This is the second straight season that the Eagles' quarterbacks coach has been hired away by another team to become an offensive coordinator. Last year, Bill Lazor was hired by the Miami Dolphins to fill that role.

Musgrave has spent six NFL seasons as an offensive coordinator and held that job title in Minnesota for three seasons before joining the Eagles in 2014. Musgrave's departure marks a return to where he began his coaching career back in 1997 as a quarterbacks coach.

In his one season as the Eagles' quarterbacks coach under head coach Chip Kelly, the Eagles set franchise records for most completions (390), yards passing (4,581), passing first downs (218), total touchdowns (54) and points (474).

The Eagles lost starting quarterback Nick Foles midway through the season. Mark Sanchez came off the bench and, despite missing all of the 2013 season with a shoulder injury, set the Eagles' single-season record for completion percentage (64.1). Sanchez also set a team record with 37 completions in a game. He also became the fourth Eagle to throw for 300 or more yards in three straight games.
