According to Tania Ganguli, Jaguars beat reporter for the Florida Times-Union, Jacksonville has written the first page in its new chapter by hiring the Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey.
The Jaguars went through a rough season of growing pains, as Blaine Gabbert didn't live up to his No. 10 overall pick expectations, and nine-year head coach Jack Del Rio was fired after starting 3-8. Team owner Wayne Weaver also sold the Jags to Illinois businessman Shahid Khan for between $750 and $800 million. Mel Tucker took the interim position after the Del Rio exit but only managed a 2-3 record.
The move might actually make some Falcons fans happy after Atlanta once again failed to advance deep into the playoffs and scored a pathetic two points in this year's embarrassment against the New York Giants. Mularkey was 14-18 as the head coach of the Buffalo Bills before getting fired in 2005. He has been Atlanta's offensive coordinator since 2008.
