The Houston Chronicle reports that due to the expected departure of current offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan, the Houston Texans are in the process of looking for a replacement and a potential candidate could be Falcons quarterback coach Bill Musgrave.
Shanahan is expected to join his father, Mike’s staff upon his official hiring by the Washington Redskins at some point in the near future.
Musgrave is a candidate that makes a lot of sense for the Texans. He played two seasons with the Broncos (1995-96) when current Texans head coach Gary Kubiak was the offensive coordinator. He also coached current Texans quarterback Matt Schaub his first two seasons at the University of Virginia, working as the Cavaliers’ offensive coordinator. He would coach Schaub for a season as a pro, when he was first hired by the Falcons as quarterbacks coach in 2006. Schaub was traded to the Texans in March 2007 and came highly recommended by Musgrave.
Musgrave has spent the past four seasons as the Falcons quarterback coach, working closely with Matt Ryan for the past two seasons. He has previous experience working as an offensive coordinator, last serving in that role with the Jacksonville Jaguars for two seasons (2003-04) before arriving in Atlanta. He also was a coordinator for the Carolina Panthers (2000) and Philadelphia Eagles (1998).
