Jaguars Hire Mike Mularkey as Head Coach

The Jacksonville Jaguars have hired their third head coach in team history and it is Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey. Mularkey, who has been offensive coordinator in Atlanta since 2008, has head coaching experience with the Buffalo Bills, leading them to a surprising 9-7 record in 2004 and a disappointing 5-11 finish in 2005 before resigning. He has a history of coaching balanced and varied offenses with a love of trickeration, particularly from his time in Pittsburgh as their offensive coordinator, also known as the last time Antwaan Randle El was good. He was key in the development of Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan and will be key in the development of Blaine Gabbert, who really had a rough go of it in his rookie campaign this season. He's a solid, if unexciting, hire for the Jaguars.
