Jaguars Coaching Update: Mike Mularkey Is Leading Candidate, According To Report

The Jacksonville Jaguars have had a number of coaching candidates come through for interviews, but they haven't been able to find the right candidate to fill their head coaching vacancy. According to Rotoworld and the Chicago Tribune, the Jaguars might eventually focus their search on Mike Mularkey of the Falcons.

A source tells the Chicago Tribune that Falcons OC Mike Mularkey is "the leading candidate" for the Jaguars' head-coaching job. The same source says Colts OC Clyde Christensen, once let go in Indy, will follow Mularkey if he lands the top job in Jacksonville.
Mularkey was asked about the Jaguars job yesterday, but refused to comment on it as his team prepares for a playoff game against the Giants this weekend, according to John Manasso of Fox Sports.
There's too much going on, especially this time for any of us to be worried about anything but this game.
We'll likely know a lot more about their interest, and if it is real or not, after the Falcons are eliminated from the Playoffs (or after the Super Bowl, if it gets that far). Until then, there can only be more speculation.
