Jaguars ask for permission to interview Mularkey


The Jaguars are starting to line up head coaching candidates.

Jason La Canfora of NFL Network reports that the team asked permission to speak with Falcons offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey.

The former Bills head coach has a game to prepare for this week, so he may not have a ton of extra time to interview. It’s also not guaranteed he’d be interested. Mularkey turned down an interview with the Broncos last year. Mularkey did interview for the Titans job that ultimately went to Mike Munchak.

Mularkey has ties to the Jaguars because his son works in the team’s scouting department. Mularkey is the first confirmed interview other than interim head coach Mel Tucker.

Peter King said Sunday night that Cowboys special teams coach Joe DeCamillis will be a candidate. Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden and former Titans coach Jeff Fisher have been mentioned as possibilities.
