Browns reportedly set to interview Bill Musgrave for their offensive coordinator position

By Nate Ulrich Published: January 18, 2011

The Browns are scheduled to interview Bill Musgrave today to replace offensive coordinator Brian Daboll, ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported.

Musgrave, 43, is the Atlanta Falcons' assistant head coach/quarterbacks coach. Although Daboll is still under contract with the Browns, the Miami Dolphins will reportedly hire him to serve as their offensive coordinator.

Falcons coach Mike Smith reluctantly granted the Browns and the Minnesota Vikings permission to interview Musgrave, a source told Mortensen. Musgrave, who's viewed as a candidate to one day succeed Falcons offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey, is reportedly scheduled to interview with the Vikings on Wednesday.

Musgrave has been an offensive coordinator for the Philadelphia Eagles (1998), the Carolina Panthers (2000) and the Jacksonville Jaguars (2003-04). He has served as an assistant coach for the Falcons since 2006.

A fourth-round draft pick of the Dallas Cowboys, Musgrave spent six years as a quarterback in the NFL. From 1991-94, he served as a backup to Joe Montana and Steve Young with the San Francisco 49ers. During Musgrave's first season with the 49ers, Browns President Mike Holmgren was San Francisco's offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach.
