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.
