Musgrave in demand
Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports that Falcons quarterbacks coach and assistant head coach Bill Musgrave is set to interview for vacant offensive coordinator positions with three teams: St. Louis Rams, Minnesota Vikings, and the Cleveland Browns.
Per Mortensen, Musgrave is set to interview with the Browns today and the Vikings tomorrow. Musgrave has twice been an offensive coordinator at the NFL level, working in that role for the first four games of the 2000 season with the Carolina Panthers, as well as two years (2003-04) in Jacksonville. Musgrave also called plays for two seasons (2001-02) at the University of Virginia. He joined the Falcons staff as quarterbacks coach in 2006. He added assistant head coach to his title last season.
Per the ESPN report, Musgrave is regarded as a potential successor to current offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey here in Atlanta. Mularkey is considered a head coaching candidate for the future, having interviewed with the Cleveland Browns earlier this month. There are currently no head coaching vacancies in the NFL, but Mularkey could likely be a candidate next season.
