Mike Mularkey reportedly in danger of being fired by Titans
Mike Mularkey reportedly is among the NFL coaches on the hot seat.
Even though the Tennessee Titans are competing for a potential playoff spot, NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport says Mularkey is in danger of losing his job.
Rapoport says Mularkey could be fired if the Titans lose on Sunday against the Jaguars, or even if the team makes the playoffs but goes one-and-done.
The thinking is that the Titans have become frustrated with the lack of development from former No. 2 overall pick Marcus Mariota, who took a step back this season after showing promise as a rookie and then last year.
Mularkey took over the Titans in 2015 after Ken Whisenhunt was fired following a 1-6 start to the season. The team has gone 19-21 in his three seasons as head coach.
