Jaguars Coaching Search: Bob Bratkowski Set To Join Mike Mularkey As Offensive Coordinator In Jacksonville

Just two days after hiring Mike Mularkey to be the new head coach, the Jacksonville Jaguars have hired Bob Bratkowski to be the team's offensive coordinator. Bratkowski is 56 years old and served as the quarterbacks coach alongside Mularkey with the Atlanta Falcons last season. He had served as the offensive coordinator for the Cincinnati Bengals from 2001 to 2010 before he was replaced in that role by Jay Gruden. Adam Schefter of ESPN first reported the hire.

Via Adam Schefter of ESPN:

The Jacksonville Jaguars plan to hire former Atlanta Falcons quarterbacks coach Bob Bratkowski as their offensive coordinator, according to a team source.

Bratkowski will once again work with new Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey, as they did in Atlanta.

Bratkowski is often cited for his success in developing former Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer. The Jaguars are making a concerted effort to hire a coaching staff which will aid the development of young quarterback Blaine Gabbert. Mularkey, and now Bratkowski, accomplish that end.
