Raiders hire Jaguars QB coach Greg Olson as offensive coordinator

The Raiders have their new offensive coordinator, and don’t worry, it’s not Mike Martz. Greg Olson (no, not that Greg Olsen) is set to be the new man in charge of the offense. Olson comes to Oakland after being the quarterbacks coach and assistant head coach of the Jaguars this season. That’s the 2-14 Jaguars, also home to the 29th-ranked offense in 2012.

Raiders interview Mike Martz for the offensive coordinator job

Mike Martz was thought to be one of the better offensive minds in the NFL at one point. After orchestrating the 'Greatest Show On Turf' with the St. Louis Rams and becoming their head coach, Martz has been somewhat of a vagabond. Going to the Detroit Lions, San Francisco 49ers, and Chicago Bears somewhat sullied his reputation. But when you run an offense that gets the...
