Jaguars Coaching Candidates Include Mike Mularkey, According To Report

The Jacksonville Jaguars are going to need a new head coach, having fired Jack Del Rio after much Twitter consternation and failing to draft Tim Tebow. According to Adam Schefter, two early candidates are recently deposed Texas A&M coach Mike Sherman and Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey.

Adam Schefter@AdamSchefter Head coaching candidates already on the Jaguars radar include Falcons OC Mike Mularkey and former Packers HC Mike Sherman.

Mularkey may have had chances to leave for the Browns, Broncos, or Titans jobs during last year's coaching carousel. He interviewed for two of them, but had to stick with the Falcons during their playoff run.

News of his departure wouldn't strike all Falcons fans as a tragedy, to put it gently. The team currently ranks 13th in offense despite boasting Pro Bowlers at virtually every position -- plus selling off the Georgia Dome's roof to pay for Julio Jones. Much blame has been hurled at Mularkey for what appears to be an offense stuck in a rut.

I've defended Mularkey before and was happy to see him stick around for this year, but I'm vigorously wavering myself.
