The Oakland Raiders have reportedly hired former Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback coach Greg Olson to be offensive coordinator.
Although Coach Dennis Allen hasn't confirmed it, the Contra Costa Times and Associated Press have reported that Olson has been hired.
The team, which went 4-12 this season, had been looking to find a coordinator who could take advantage of dynamic running back Darren McFadden. Olson seems to be the right person, having guided offenses recently with St. Louis and Tampa Bay that capitalized on the talents of Steven Jackson and LeGarrette Blount, who were both 1,000-yard rushers.
Olson has been an assistant coach or offensive coordinator in the NFL for 11 seasons. He will try to help turn around an offense that ranked 18th overall and 28th in rushing.
