According to a report from ESPN.com, Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey is one of the latest assistants to be listed as a head coaching candidate for 2011.Both the Cleveland Browns–who fired Eric Mangini on Monday–and the Denver Broncos–who got rid of Josh McDaniels back in December–will interview Mularkey later this week. He has two years of head coaching experience with the Buffalo Bills from 2004-05, but other than that–Mularkey has bounced around as an assistant for numerous teams.
Mularkey has been a key role in the success of the Falcons’ offense–taking advantage of one of the best QB-RB-WR trios in Matt Ryan, Michael Turner, and Roddy White. It should be interesting to see whether or not Mularkey receives an offer from one of these teams and if Atlanta will be searching for a new offensive coordinator once the offseason rolls around
