Oakland Raiders to run a no-huddle offense with Derek Carr

When the Oakland Raiders hired Bill Musgrave as their new offensive coordinator, many were disappointed.

For the Raiders, the Jack Del Rio hire made perfect sense

The Oakland Raiders have a history of hiring young head coaches with very little previous experience in that role. From Lane Kiffin to Dennis Allen, this is a strategy that has not paid off for the most part.
