Previously, Falcons defensive coordinator Brian VanGorder decided to vacate his position in the pros to go back to the SEC and take the same position with the Auburn Tigers. Now the offensive coordinator could be leaving the nest as well, and for some (the players) a move like this could be viewed as "addition by subtraction" for the future of the team.

The Falcons offense has received backlash for its inability to convert on 4th and 1 throughout the season, and some of the blame was placed squarely on Mularkey's play-calling ability. Even with those failures, Mularkey helped Matt Ryan become a Pro Bowl quarterback in just three years and the Jaguars could look to see the same turnaround with their rookie quarterback Blaine Gabbert for the future.
