BERKELEY — Longtime NFL assistant Bill Musgrave was hired Friday to become the new offensive coordinator at Cal.

Coach Justin Wilcox announced Musgrave will replace Beau Baldwin next season for the Golden Bears. Baldwin left to become head coach at Cal Poly.

“Bill Musgrave has a brilliant offensive mind and is one of the top teachers of offensive football and quarterbacks,“ Wilcox said. “Bill has incredible football knowledge and has been extremely versatile in the offensive systems he has run throughout his career, which is important. He also has a strong desire to coach again at the collegiate level, where he can help develop young football players at a formative stage of their careers.”

Musgrave has more than two decades of coaching experience in college and the pros and has spent 13 seasons as an offensive coordinator. His only college coaching job came in 2001-02 when he was offensive coordinator at Virginia.

He has ties to the Bay Area having played as a backup quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers from 1991-94 and serving as offensive coordinator for the Raiders in 2015-16 when he helped them earn their only playoff berth in the past 17 seasons.

Musgrave most recently was on the staff of the Denver Broncos in 2017-18, serving as quarterbacks coach and then coordinator.

Musgrave also has coached in the NFL with Philadelphia, Carolina, Jacksonville, Washington, Atlanta and Minnesota.

Musgrave played college ball at Oregon, where he finished his career as the school’s all-time leader in passing and total offense, while establishing 15 school records.
