Well, that didn’t take long.
New Jaguars general manager David Caldwell wasted no time remaking the franchise under his terms, as he fired head coach Mike Mularkey after one season, the team announced.
It’s not a tremendous surprise, when you consider that Caldwell was a sought-after commodity, and wasn’t in a position to have to take someone else’s leftovers.
Mularkey met with owner Shad Khan last week, and thought he might be safe after a 2-14 season, but was told that the new GM would have final say. Caldwell had plenty of background with Mularkey from his time with the Falcons, so it didn’t take long for him to make a decision.
Many have linked Caldwell to his former college classmate Greg Roman, the 49ers offensive coordinator.
