Mike Mularkey likely fired by Jaguars, says Adam Schefter

Thomas B. Shea

It is seemingly more and more unlikely that Mike Mularkey reaches his one year anniversary since being hired by the Jaguars.

Reports that the Jaguars are likely to part with head coach Mike Mularkey have been widespread and the latest comes from ESPN's Adam Schefter who said Wednesday afternoon that it is "unlikely" that new general manager Dave Caldwell elects to retain Mularkey, although Schefter reports no decision has been made yet.

Mularkey, 51, was hired by the Jaguars on Jan. 11, 2012, but it's seems increasingly unlikely that he will make it to his one year anniversary with the team. In his first season as head coach of the Jaguars, the team finished 2-14, the worst record in franchise history. Prior to joining the Jaguars he was the offensive coordinator of the Atlanta Falcons and previously had two years of head coaching experience with the Buffalo Bills.

Previous reports from CBS Sports's Jason La Canfora and NFL Network's Albert Breer have indicated that San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman is expected to be a candidate for the Jaguars head coaching job in the event that Mularkey is fired.
