Jaguars coach Mike Mularkey hospitalized on Monday

USA TODAY Sports

The Jaguars head coach is expected to return to work on Tuesday.

After feeling ill on Monday morning, Jaguars Head Coach Mike Mularkey was admitted to a local hospital for tests, the team announced on Twitter. Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union later reported that Mularkey is at Baptist Medical Center and could be held overnight.

The Jaguars expect the coach to be back at the facility on Tuesday, but announced that defensive coordinator Mel Tucker will be handling Mularkey's usual Monday press conference. Tucker served as the interim head coach of the Jaguars for the last five games of the 2011 season following the firing of Jack Del Rio, posting a 2-3 record.

Mularkey, 51, is in his first season as head coach of the Jaguars after serving as the offensive coordinator of the Atlanta Falcons for four seasons. He previously served as the head coach of the Buffalo Bills for the 2004 and 2005 seasons. Under Mularkey, the Jaguars have had a disappointing 2-11 season thus far.
