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.
