JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - The Jacksonville Jaguars have fired coach Mike Mularkey after one season, the worst in franchise history.
New general manager David Caldwell made the announcement Thursday, giving him a clean slate heading into 2013.
Mularkey, who went 2-14 this season, looked like he would be one and done when owner Shad Khan parted ways with general manager Gene Smith last week. Even though Khan ultimately hired Mularkey, Smith directed the coaching search last January that started and ended with the former Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator.
Mularkey's brief tenure - he didn't even last a year - was filled with mistakes. His biggest one may have been his loyalty to Smith, who assembled a roster that lacked talent on both sides of the ball.
