As expected, Mike Mularkey's time in Jacksonville was one and done.

Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Jaguars fired Mularkey on Thursday following a 2-14 season.

The news comes as no surprise given the team's new general manager, David Caldwell, reportedly had put the previous regime on notice. It was a matter of when -- not if -- Mularkey would get the boot.

Both Caldwell and owner Shad Khan released statements, confirming the organization's decision to part with the 51-year-old.

Mularkey oversaw a 2012 Jags team that wasn't just bad, but historically bad. Their two-win season was the worst in franchise history, and eight of their losses came by 16 points or more.

A former coordinator with the Falcons, Mularkey is known for his offensive prowess, but Jacksonville ranked 29th in total offense, albeit with very limited talent on the field. It was his second stint as a head coach; his first came in Buffalo from 2004-05.

Caldwell, who similarly came over from Atlanta, is looking to handpick his next head man. One possibility is 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman, whom Caldwell roomed with in college.
