Developing: Mike Mularkey Fired from Jaguars

This probably is not much of a surprise to our Jacksonville friends and quite honestly, it wasn't a shock to us either.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have parted ways with Mike Mularkey after one 2-14 season as the teams head coach.

The team had fired former G.M Gene Smith a few weeks ago and announced David Caldwell as his replacement on Tuesday. is already speculating on replacements, saying Caldwell would like to bring in pal and current San Francisco offensive coordinator Greg Roman or current Falcons defensive coordinator Mike Nolan to take over the floundering franchise.

Interest in Jaguars football has been waning and team owner Shad Khan has been frantically looking for ways to boost attendance. We, along with many, were shocked at the Mularkey hiring last season. We also might mention, whomever gets the job, may be dealing with the specter of Tim Tebow. The Jets backup QB has voiced his displeasure at the way he was used (or not) in New York and tons of rumors say he'll get his release or a trade in order to end up in Jacksonville where he is absolutely worshipped.

Stay tuned.
