Coach Mike Murlarkey has been fired by newly acquired GM David Caldwell after one year in Jacksonville. The Jaguars suffered through a 2-14 season, and a lack of talent left Caldwell in the position to rebuild from the ground up.
Caldwell released this statement:
"I informed Mike today that he will not return as head coach of the Jaguars," Caldwell said in a statement released by the team. "I know Mike well and do not want anyone to misinterpret the rationale behind my decision.
Mike is an excellent coach and I am sure he will succeed in his next stop in the NFL. However, I must do what I believe is best for the Jacksonville Jaguars and immediately explore every avenue possible to turn our football team around.
For that to happen as seamlessly as we want, and as quickly as our fans deserve, I feel it is in everyone's best interests for an immediate and clean restart," according to Marc Sessler of NFL.com.
Owner Shad Khan added:
"Mike Mularkey is leaving our organization with my utmost respect," Khan said in a statement. "Mike gave the Jaguars everything he had on and off the field, and his efforts as our head coach will always be appreciated. Mike will land on his feet soon. Until then, I wish nothing but the best for Mike and his family."
