William Scott "Bill" Musgrave (born November 11, 1967) is an American football coach and former quarterback. He is currently the quarterbacks coach for the Philadelphia Eagles of the National Football League (NFL).

Playing career

A standout athlete at Grand Junction High School, Musgrave was named the Colorado High School Athlete of the Year in 1985.[1] Musgrave started four years for the University of Oregon, and was captain for three. Musgrave led the Ducks to back-to-back bowl appearances for the first time in school history. In 1990, as a Senior, Musgrave was named team MVP, 1990 first-team all-conference quarterback, GTE Academic All-American of the Year, and earned a Scholar-Athlete Award by the National Football Foundation and Hall of Fame. Musgrave was inducted into the school's Hall of Fame in 2000. Musgrave is the team's career leader for passing yardage (8343).

  • 1987: 139/234 for 1,836 yards with 13 TD vs 8 INT.
  • 1988: 62/121 for 815 yards with 8 TD vs 4 INT.
  • 1989: 231/401 for 3,081 yards with 22 TD vs 16 INT.
  • 1990: 173/301 for 2,219 yards with 14 TD vs 12 INT.

Drafted in the fourth round by the Mike Shanahan. Musgrave went with Shanahan to Denver, where he played in 1995-96, and was released in preseason 1997.

Coaching career

Immediately after being released as a player, Musgrave joined the Carolina Panthers, in an arrangement that saw he and Seifert having a heavy hand in calling the plays over offensive coordinator Gil Haskell. Upon Haskell's departure to Seattle, Musgrave was promoted to offensive coordinator in 2000.

Having enjoyed a favorable relationship with Seifert, doing gameplanning, and helping call plays was a major plus for Musgrave, and a reason the team chose him to replace Haskell, who had been a holdover from a previous staff. However, as an inexperienced coordinator, Musgrave had faltered at times, been criticized in the media for choices in playcalling, and was at one point rumored to have been yelled at by Seifert in front of the team. Musgrave resigned from the position after four games.

Musgrave accepted the position of offensive coordinator under Al Groh at the University of Virginia in 2001-2002, tutoring Matt Schaub to school records. Musgrave left to be the offensive coordinator for the Jacksonville Jaguars (2003–04), and was released from that position. Since, Musgrave has held the quarterbacks coach position for the Washington Redskins (2005) and Atlanta Falcons (2006–2009). In 2010, Musgrave was promoted to assistant head coach/quarterbacks coach of the Atlanta Falcons.

Musgrave was hired by the Minnesota Vikings to the position of offensive coordinator on January 16, 2011.[2] He was hired by the Philadelphia Eagles as the team's quarterbacks coach on January 27, 2014.[3]
