Broncos to Interview Mularkey

Posted Jan 4, 2011

The Denver Broncos will interview Falcons Offensive Coordinator Mike Mularkey in Atlanta on Friday regarding the team's head coaching vacancy.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The search for the next head coach of the Denver Broncos officially kicks off this Friday, when team officials will travel to Atlanta to interview Falcons Offensive Coordinator Mike Mularkey.

Denver asked for and was granted permission by the Falcons to interview the 17-year NFL coach.

For the past three seasons, Mularkey has served as Atlanta's offensive coordinator, overseeing the Falcons' "Big Three" of quarterback Matt Ryan, running back Michael Turner and wide receiver Roddy White.

In 2010, the Falcons averaged 25.9 points per game -- good for fifth-most in the league -- putting up more than 340 yards per game as they locked up the No. 1 overall seed in the NFC playoffs.

Turner ranked third in the league with 1,371 rushing yards, White finished second behind Brandon Lloyd with 1,389 receiving yards and Ryan threw for 3,705 yards, 28 touchdowns and just nine interceptions en route to a 91.0 passer rating for the regular season.

Mularkey has experience as a head coach in the league, serving as the leader of the Buffalo Bills for two seasons. In his first season in 2004, he led the Bills to their first winning season in five years with a 9-7 record, as the club tallied wins in nine of its final 12 games. He compiled an overall record of 14-18.

He has also spent time on the coaching staffs of the Miami Dolphins (Offensive Coordinator in 2006, Tight Ends in 2007), Pittsburgh Steelers (Tight Ends from 1996-2000, Offensive Coordinator from 2001-03) and Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Quality Control in 1994, Tight Ends in 1995).
