Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey is the subject of an interview request by the Tennessee Titans, according to Chris Mortensen. The Falcons approved Tennessee’s request, though no word on when or if Mularkey will interview.
The Titans recently fired longtime coach Jeff Fisher after 17 seasons. A handful of names have been mentioned, including Mike Munchak, Mike Heimerdinger, and Ray Sherman.
Mularkey has been a hot coaching prospect since the regular season ended, turning down an interview with the Broncos before interviewing with the Browns, both during the playoffs. Anyone looking for a head coach over the weekend surely caught Mularkey’s players dominating the Pro Bowl, as Matt Ryan, Tony Gonzalez, and Ovie Mughelli all scored touchdowns.
Mularkey to Tennessee would mean the Falcons would need to rebuild half their coaching staff minus the one coach who weathered the previous overhaul, Bill Musgrave. The former Falcons assistant accepted a job as Minnesota’s offensive coordinator a couple weeks ago.
