Musgrave up for Browns, Vikes jobs; McDaniels, Rams hit snag

The Minnesota Vikings, St. Louis Rams, Oakland Raiders and Cleveland Browns are among the teams still looking for an offensive coordinator after the Miami Dolphins agreed to terms with Brian Daboll and the Carolina Panthers hired Rob Chudzinski for those positions, league sources said Tuesday.

Current offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell hasn't been let go, but the Vikings already have interviewed Josh McDaniels for the position. Atlanta Falcons quarterbacks coach Bill Musgrave will arrive in Minnesota tonight to interview, according to a league source. Musgrave will arrive in Minnesota from Cleveland, where he is interviewing for their coordinator job, a source said.

McDaniels was the first candidate interviewed by the Rams for their opening, but those talks have hit a snag, and the Rams could end up talking to Musgrave and former Vikings coach Brad Childress for their opening. League sources said it isn't out of the question that McDaniels will and with the Rams, but there are some hurdles to overcome for that to happen.

Baltimore Ravens consultant Al Saunders is a candidate to handle the Raiders' coordinating duties, with Hue Jackson now promoted to head coach. Ravens officials expect that move to happen.

NFL Network insider Michael Lombardi reported Monday that Daboll, who was Eric Mangini's offensive coordinator with the Browns, is headed to the Dolphins.

The Panthers hired Chudzinski, also a former Browns offensive coordinator. Chudzinski spent this past season as tight ends coach/assistant head coach in San Diego, where he worked with new Panthers coach Ron Rivera, who was the Chargers' defensive coordinator.
