The Jacksonville Jaguars have fired general manager Gene Smith, but the fate of head coach Mike Mularkey has yet to be decided. Many, including myself, believe the Jaguars should do a full house cleaning and bring in a new coaching staff with their new general manager.
Unsurprisingly however, it seems the Jaguars will wait until their new general manager is in place before coming to a decision on the future of Mike Mularkey.
I'm told Jaguars will wait til new GM is hired to decide on Mularkey— Eugene Frenette (@GeneFrenette) December 31, 2012
I would guess the Jaguars have their new general manager by the end of the week so they can go ahead and decide the future of the coaching staff and get a jump start if the plan is to go another direction. Mularkey has been underwhelming as a coach in his first season, with a 2-14 record and many in-game coaching mistakes.
