EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — Like the rest of the Minnesota Vikings, offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave has had a rough first season on the job.

Coach Leslie Frazier hired Musgrave away from Atlanta after he was praised for his work with Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan. Then the lockout came, robbing Musgrave of any chance to get on the same page with Minnesota rookie Christian Ponder in the offseason.

The 2-12 Vikings rank 28th in the league in passing offense, and Musgrave has come under some fire from fans for his play calling.

Frazier says he believes that with a full offseason, Musgrave’s offensive system can be a success in Minnesota.

Musgrave says this year has been “very unorthodox” and he looks forward to having a more normal offseason to prepare for 2012.
