Bratkowski to join Mularkey in Jacksonville
Adam Schefter of ESPN tweets that Falcons quarterback coach Bob Bratkowski is expected to join former Falcons offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey on his new coaching staff in Jacksonville. Bratkowski will take over the play-calling duties as their offensive coordinator.
Bratkowski finished his first and last season with the Falcons as quarterbacks coach after ten seasons as the offensive coordinator of the Cincinnati Bengals. Both Bratkowski and Mularkey were assistants with the Pittsburgh Steelers (1999-00).
Bratkowski was considered a dark horse candidate for the vacated offensive coordinator position as a replacement for Mularkey. Schefter also reports that interim Jaguars head coach Mel Tucker will be retained as the team’s defensive coordinator. Tucker was reportedly under consideration to take the same role with the Falcons, as a replacement for Brian VanGorder.
