New Oakland Raiders offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave knows a thing or two about running the football. Musgrave guided a top-10 rushing attack four of his six seasons as an offensive coordinator -- in Jacksonville and Minnesota.
"I have a very positive impression," Musgrave said Tuesday in a conference call, per CSN Bay Area. "He has tremendous size and speed. He had a super career (at Central Florida).
"I'm looking forward to getting on the field and finding out what he's all about and what his strengths are so we can tailor our run game so it's right up his alley."
Murray earned 424 yards, a whopping 5.2 yards per attempt and 17 receptions for 143 yards in just 82 carries last season.
Darren McFadden and Maurice Jones-Drew appear on the way out in Oakland, which leaves Murray as the primary back in the stable heading into the offseason. The jury is still out on Murray's future, but if the young runner improves on his performance down the stretch last season, he could have a chance to become Musgrave's next great workhorse.
