Like every other NFL team in the state of Florida, the Miami Dolphins are in the search for a new head coach. Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey is now a target for the Dolphins, according to a report by Jason La Canfora of NFL Network.
Dolphins requested and received permission to interview Atlanta O Coordinator Mike Mularkey. Will meet with the Jags as well #insideslant— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) January 7, 2012
Mularkey is also a candidate for the Jacksonville Jaguars, who requested permission to speak with him on Monday of last week. Mularkey will not interview with either team until the Falcons are out of the playoffs however, so that he can concentrate his focus on beating the New York Giants on Sunday. The earliest Mularkey would interview with either team would be Monday if the Falcons lose their playoff game.
