On Tuesday, the Denver Broncos announced Falcons Offensive Coordinator Mike Mularkey will be interviewed by the Broncos on Friday in Atlanta regarding the team’s head coaching vacancy.
Mularkey, a former Tight End for the Minnesota Vikings, has been coaching in the NFL since 1994 and went 14-18 as the head coach of the Buffalo Bills from 2004-05. In 2006, Mularkey resigned due to disagreements with the Bills management. Buffalo hasn’t had a winning season since Mularkey’s first season with the team in 2004 when the team went 9-7.
After his short stint as a head coach, Mularkey become the Miami Dolphins Offensive Coordinator prior to joining Atlanta in 2008. He’s been credited for the recent success of the Falcons offense and development of quarterback Matt Ryan.
Interim Head Coach Eric Studesville is also expected to be formally interviewed for the job on Monday.
I can see how the team thinks he would be a good fit for Tebow at a cheap price, but isn’t it time the Broncos got a defensive minded head coach?
