Report: Mike Mularkey interviewing for potential return as Falcons OC

Mike Mularkey

The Atlanta Falcons may be bringing back a notable name from the Mike Smith era.

SiriusXM NFL Radio’s Alex Marvez reported Wednesday that ex-Tennessee Titans coach Mike Mularkey interviewed for Atlanta’s offensive coordinator position, the job that he previously held with them from 2008 to 2011.

The 57-year-old Mularkey enjoyed success over those four years, leading the Falcons to multiple top-10 finishes in total offense en route to three playoff appearances and two division titles. However, his reputation took a bit of a hit in Tennessee, where went 20-21 (.488) over three seasons before getting fired following the 2017 campaign.

Atlanta is looking to fill the OC spot after dismissing Steve Sarkisian among several other major coaching staff changes. Mularkey is already familiar with the Falcons’ biggest offensive stars such as Matt Ryan and Julio Jones, but one has to wonder if there is a higher-upside candidate available.
