Jaguars Request Permission To Interview Mike Mularky, According To Report

The Jacksonville Jaguars have requested permission from the Atlanta Falcons to interview offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey for their head coaching vacancy, Jason La Canfora of the NFL Network reports. Mularky is the current offensive coordinator of the playoff bound Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons play the New York Giants this weekend in the NFC playoffs, so it is uncertain of the Falcons would want their offensive coordinator to be focusing on an interview instead of game planning for the playoffs. This request isn't much of a surprise as Mularky has experience grooming QBs and his son is on the Jaguars scouting staff.

This wouldn't be the first head coaching position for Mularkey however, as he was the head coach of the Buffalo Bills from 2004 to 2005. Mularkey started his first season as the Bills head coach 0-4 but the team rallied to finish 9-7. On that season, the Bills were 7th overall in total offense. Mularkey's second season saw the Bills finish 5-11 while going through a quarterback controversy between J.P. Losman and Kelley Holcomb. Mularkey resigned after the 2005 season, citing a disagreement in the direction of the team with newly hired manager Marv Levy.

After the Bills head coaching job, Mularkey moved on to be the offensive coordinator of the Miami Dolphins under Nick Saban for the 2006 NFL season and then was moved to tight ends coach for the 2007 season when Cam Cameron was hired as the Dolphins head coach. After the 2007 season, Mularkey was released from his position with the rest of the Dolphins coaches.
