Mike Mularkey A 'Person Of Interest' For Chiefs Job, According To Report

CBS Sports' Ryan Wilson is reporting that Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey, rumored to be a top candidate for the open Jacksonville Jaguars head coaching job, is drawing some attention in Kansas City for their vacancy as well.

Buried in a story about the surprise interview of former Jaguars head coach Jack Del Rio in Kansas City is a small but interesting note:

Kansas City has also interviewed Packers offensive coordinator Joe Philbin are are reportedly interested in speaking with Falcons' OC Mike Mularkey.

That's the first time Mularkey has been mentioned among the many, many names being tossed around in Kansas City, where aside from interim head coach Romeo Crennel, a variety of potential names have been tossed around, unlike Jacksonville, where Mularkey seems to be the top candidate.

If Atlanta wins its playoff game at New York Sunday, league rules dictate that they can control the time and location of any potential interviews with interested parties and Mularkey.

Mike Mularkey Interviewing For Miami Dolphins Job As Well, According To Report

Same story as last year. Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey, who had lined up as many as three NFL head coaching interviews last season before having to trim his plans due to Atlanta's playoffs run, has a pair already set for this year, according to reports. The latest: a meeting with the Miami Dolphins, who, according to NFL.com's Jason La Canfora, have received permission.

With the Tampa Bay Buccaneers also firing head coach Raheem Morris, kind of want to see if Mularkey can pull off an interview with every Florida team. (The Bucs were interested at some point, according to one report.) The Florida Gators need an offensive coordinator, too. All-time play caller, perhaps?

Mike Mularkey Considered 'Leading Candidate' For Jaguars Head Coaching Job, According To Report

At least one report is claiming that Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey isn't just a candidate to become the next head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars, but the leading candidate.

Hidden in a report by the Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs regarding the Bears' open offensive coordinator job and a list of potential replacements for Mike Martz is an item with potentially huge ramifications for the Falcons and Jaguars:

Colts offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen, if let go, could be a strong candidate for the position based on his previous experience with Smith for the Buccaneers. But an NFL source said if Falcons offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey lands a head coaching job (the Jaguars and Bucs are interested in him) Christensen will go with him. The source said Mularkey will be the leading candidate in Jacksonville.

The Jags have officially requested to speak with Mularkey, along with other rumored candidates including Jay Gruden (brother of former Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Jon Gruden), who is thought to be the early favorite for the job.
