The #Jaguars are hiring Mike Mularkey, according to a source. Mularkey interviewed today.— Tania Ganguli (@taniaganguli) January 11, 2012
Mularkey interviewed today for the head coaching position and apparently was impressive enough for the Jaguars to give him the job. Mularkey has been a head coach in the NFL previously, with a short stint with the Buffalo Bills. Mularkey has been the offensive coordinator of the Atlanta Falcons since the 2008 season and helped develop quarterback Matt Ryan. The hope is that an offensive oriented head coach will be able to work with Gabbert and mold him into a franchise quarterback.
There is no word yet on who Mularkey will hire for the other offensive positions or if Mularkey will call the offensive on his own.
