Jacksonville Jaguars Hire Mike Mularkey, According To Report

After focusing on several offensive coordinators as candidates in their head coaching search, the Jacksonville Jaguars have hired Atlanta's Mike Mularkey to be the team's next head coach. The Jaguars had requested to interview Mularkey last week, but he declined at that time while he prepared the Falcons for their playoff game with the New York Giants. Mularkey interviewed earlier today, and it apparently didn't take long for new owner Shahid Khan to make the move. Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union first reported the news.

The Jaguars zeroed in on an offensive-minded coach to help guide young quarterback Blaine Gabbert. On the defensive side, SB Nation's Alfie Crow tweeted that he expects Mel Tucker to stay on board and serve as Jacksonville's defensive coordinator.
