Greg Olson hired as Raiders offensive coordinator

NFL News - [Full Article]

The Oakland Raiders hired former Jaguars quarterbacks coach Greg Olson for their open position, ESPN's Bill Williamson reported.

Olson is expected to bring a power-run game that should better fit Darren McFadden, who never seemed to find his way in fired Greg Knapp's zone-blocking scheme. That was Knapp's undoing. Olson was an offensive coordinator for six years before his stint in Jacksonville - three in Tampa Bay, two in St. Louis and one in Detroit.

Fantasy Impact: 

It's good news for McFadden who has proved to be elite when in the right system.
