The Jacksonville Jaguars have found their new general
manager in the form of Dave Caldwell, and he’s unlikely to retain lame-duck
head Mike Mularkey, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
New Jacksonville Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell
is unlikely to keep coach Mike Mularkey, according to sources inside and
outside the organization, although no final decisions have been made.
Caldwell and Mularkey do have some history, as they worked
together while in the Atlanta Falcons’ organization. However, Caldwell is
thought to prefer starting his tenure in Jacksonville with a new head coach.
Schefter names San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman and Falcons
defensive coordinator Mike Nolan as possible targets.
2012 was Mularkey’s first season with the Jaguars, and he
led the team to their worst record, 2-14, in franchise history. Jacksonville
lost eight of their 14 games by 16 points or more, which is expected to result
in Mularkey not getting a chance to show what he can do in year two.
