The news that the Tennessee Titans had been given permission to interview Atlanta Falcons' offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey for the head coaching job broke earlier this week. Now we know that interview will take place on Friday.
Pro Football Talk via The Tennesseean is quick to point out that all indications are the Titans will hire from within and the Mularkey interview is simply a formality. Of course, longshots have been hired before with an impressive interview so it's best to wait until the Titans make an official announcement before throwing your "Welcome Back to Atlanta, Mike" party.
Mularkey was a candidate for the Cleveland Browns and Denver Broncos head coaching jobs in January (though he withdrew his name with the Broncos) and has a career 14-18 record as head coach of the Buffalo Bills in 2004 and 2005.
