Do you remember Bill Musgrave?

The former Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator is getting another crack at calling plays in the NFL. The Oakland Raiders announced Monday evening that Musgrave is the team's new offensive coordinator, where he'll work under new head coach, former Vikings linebacker, Jack Del Rio.

NFL Network's Michael Silver was the first to report the news.

NFL.com notes that this will be Musgrave's second stint working as offensive coordinator under Del Rio. The two were together for the 2003 and 2004 seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Del Rio coached the Jaguars for nine seasons before spending the last three seasons as defensive coordinator for the Denver Broncos.

The Raiders averaged 15.8 points per game in 2014; ranking 31st in the league. After being fired by the Vikings following the 2013 season, Musgrave signed on as quarterbacks coach for the Philadelphia Eagles.

Tom Pelissero of USA Today notes that Musgrave got a bad rap in Minnesota despite gluing together an offense with poor quarterback play.

Musgrave will now have the chance to mold Derek Carr, a promising quarterback fresh off his rookie season.
