Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey will be interviewed by the Denver Broncos regarding Denver’s vacant head coaching position. The Broncos announced via Twitter the interview will occur on Friday in Atlanta.
There’s no telling if they’re likely to offer Mularkey the job, which was recently made available by the firing of Josh McDaniels. But teams don’t interview coaching candidates on a whim. Mularkey has previously said he’d like to be a head coach again, but that his current focus is on the Falcons and their playoff run.
The Broncos have reportedly also been interested in Stanford Cardinal head coach Jim Harbaugh, but so is everybody else. Falcons fans who’d like to see Mularkey hang around now have a reason to hope former Stanford QB John Elway can convince Harbaugh to visit Denver very soon.
Mularkey joined Mike Smith’s first Falcons staff in 2008 after various offensive coordinator and position coaching jobs and a two-year run as Buffalo Bills head coach.
