Bill Musgrave will improve the Philadelphia Eagles offense

Chip Kelly hired Bill Musgrave, the former Minnesota offensive coordinator, as his new quarterbacks coach on Tuesday. Musgrave, 46, replaces Bill Lazor, who left the Eagles after one season to become offensive coordinator of the Miami Dolphins. The hiring was first reported by Alex Marvez of Fox Sports.

Musgrave’s history is intriguing for a few different reasons, but the most important is, he has deep roots in the West Coast offense, as does Eagles offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur. Musgrave spent most of his playing career as a backup in San Francisco, where he played under Mike Holmgren, Mike Shanahan and Gary Kubiak. He followed Shanahan to Denver, where he backed up John Elway for a couple of years.

Musgrave is one of the only players to leave the NFL and be given a coaching job the year after when he took a job with Oakland and Jon Gruden in 1997.  Musgrave has worked with Michael Vick and Matt Ryan in the past.  Expect the Eagles to move the ball just as well if not better next year.
