The two teams confirmed to have scheduled interviews with Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey, the Denver Broncos and Cleveland Browns, both hired head coaches today. The Browns grabbed St. Louis Rams OC Pat Shurmur, while the Broncos have brought on former Carolina Panthers head coach John Fox, according to executive vice president John Elway.
Fox’s last game as Panthers coach was against Mularkey’s Falcons, while Shurmur sounds like a shushed murmur, the most depressing noise anyone could ever utter.
Mularkey canceled his Broncos interview from last weekend, but was open to rescheduling once the Falcons are done with winning at football for the year. He didn’t cancel the Saturday Browns interview. Former Broncos coach Josh McDaniels is reportedly a target if Mularkey does end up leaving. Very few — if any — more head coaching jobs are likely to open up.
