Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey made it through "Black Monday", but according to NFL.com's Steve Wyche, his future in Jacksonville appears to be in serious doubt.
A team source told Wyche that Mularkey's assistants have been cleared by Jacksonville to seek positions with other teams, if they should so choose. Jacksonville is in the market for a new general manager after relieving Gene Smith of his duties and the new GM might accept the position with the Jaguars, if they can choose their own coach.
Mularkey was not fired with the other head coaches on "Black Monday", so, it seemed as if his job was safe, but something must have changed with Jaguars management sometime between then.
Jacksonville finished a dismal 2-14 this season under Mularkey. Mularkey, 51, is in his first year with the Jags and spent two prior seasons as the head coach for the Buffalo Bills achieving a winning record in 2004, finishing at 9-7.
