The Broncos were the first team to ever break news of a head coach firing via Twitter. Now they’ve broken news about a candidate to replace Josh McDaniels via Twitter.
The team announced Tuesday that Falcons offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey will interview for the head coaching position on Friday in Atlanta. NFL rules allow coaches working during the playoff bye week to interview for a position.
Mularkey had his ups and downs in Buffalo, but no Bills coach since Marv Levy has truly succeeded. Mularkey loves gadget plays and a creative run-first offense, so Denver could see him as a logical fit to coach Tim Tebow.
With Kyle Orton likely on the way out, it appears the Broncos will search for a coach that can maximize Tebow’s strengths.
UPDATE: Jason La Canfora of NFL Network reports Mularkey will also interview with the Browns.
