This guys not bad, he used to coach at UVa. But I would rather have the offensive cordinator from the Vikings. Or somebody from the colts or Chiefs. Either way its getting a young guy on the offensive staff and I think thats a good thing.

Apparently Burns will stay in the organization in an as-yet-undetermined role.

More troubling is that Musgrave ran a "West Coast style" attack, with lots of - you guessed it - short passes. Though his role as QB coach will be more about mechanics and reads, one can't help but wonder how this will lead to the attacking style offense Gibbs and Breaux say they plan to implement.

Hopefully as QB coach, he won't have much influence as a playcaller. Maybe he will be the one to fine tune the mechanics of Ramsey, working on footwork and things like that. Leftwich has cement feet too so he should be used to dealing with a statue in the pocket.

I'm curious too as to what Burns plans to do if he is staying with the organization.

As a QB coach he shouldn't have any effect on the playcalling.

Here's his bio from the Jags site:

Bill Musgrave begins his second season as offensive coordinator in Jacksonville. Quarterback Byron Leftwich returns for his first full season as the starter and newly drafted players Reggie Williams and Greg Jones join an already talented squad headlined by Jimmy Smith, Fred Taylor and Kyle Brady.

Musgrave spent six years as a quarterback in the NFL, four years as an NFL assistant coach and two years coaching on the collegiate level. Musgrave returned to the NFL in 2003 following two successful seasons as the offensive coordinator at the University of Virginia. Previously, he served as the offensive coordinator for the Carolina Panthers and Philadelphia Eagles.

Musgrave was a fourth-round draft choice of the Dallas Cowboys in 1991. He played for the San Francisco 49ers from 1991 to ’94, backing up Steve Young and playing in the 49ers’ Super Bowl XXIX victory over San Diego. He spent 1995 and ’96 with the Denver Broncos, playing behind another future Hall of Famer in John Elway.

Musgrave’s coaching career began before his playing days were over. He was released by the Broncos during the 1997 preseason and was quickly hired by the Oakland Raiders as quarterbacks coach. That year, he helped guide Jeff George to a league-leading 3,919 yards passing and an AFC-best 29 touchdown passes. In 1998, Musgrave went to training camp with the Indianapolis Colts. After being released, he joined the Philadelphia Eagles’ coaching staff as offensive coordinator for the final 10 games of the season. He joined the Carolina Panthers as quarterbacks coach in 1999, playing an instrumental role in a Pro Bowl season for Steve Beuerlein, who passed for nearly 4,500 yards and 36 touchdowns, as the Panthers had the NFL’s No. 2-ranked passing offense. Musgrave was promoted to offensive coordinator in 2000.

He spent the last two years as the offensive coordinator at the University of Virginia. Named the "Best Coordinator" in the ACC by The Sporting News in 2002, he was instrumental in the development of quarterback Matt Schaub. One of a host of players who flourished under Musgrave’s innovative schemes, Schaub almost completely rewrote the Virginia record book for passing and was named ACC Player of the Year. Overall, Virginia threw 32 touchdown passes in 2002, including a record 28 by Schaub.

Musgrave was a four-year starting quarterback and three-year captain at Oregon. He finished his collegiate career as the Ducks’ all-time leading passer while setting a total of 15 school records. His 60 career passing touchdowns ranked second only to Elway in Pac-10 history. He was a three-time All-Academic selection and was the nation’s All-Academic Player of the Year as a senior. He received a bachelor’s degree in finance in 1990. Musgrave was born November 11, 1967 in Grand Junction, Colo. He was a standout athlete at Grand Junction High School and was named the Colorado High School Athlete of the Year in 1985. He and his wife, Neely, have two sons, Carter and Eli, and two daughters, Miranda and Delaney. They reside in Jacksonville.

COACHING BACKGROUND: 1997 Oakland Raiders, 1998 Philadelphia Eagles, 1999-2000 Carolina Panthers, 2001-02 Virginia, 2003-04 Jacksonville Jaguars

I don't think he has a whole lot of faith in Brunell. Jacksonville did bench and then let him go. I think that maybe the Skins are thinking he can help Ramsey make the same sort of strides that Byron Leftwich made this season. Leftwich played very well at times and I hope that Musgrave can help Ramsey out.

And we're trying to establish continuity? Doesn't sound like this guy has any history of loyalty.

It's not uncommon for assistants to jump around a bit, for experience and for better positions.

Gibbs is undoubtedly looking to pick his brain on the west coast system. A lot of us were saying he needs to bring in a younger offensive mind, this might not be the splashy move that we wanted but regardless, it's a younger mind with a different background than Gibbs.
