Mularkey turns down Lions
Don Banks of SI.com reported that Falcons offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey turned down the Detroit Lions after they sought him to be interviewed for their vacant head coaching position a week ago. According to Banks’s source, Mularkey remains interested in becoming a head coach again, but did not deem the Lions as the right opportunity.
Mularkey was formerly the head coach of the Buffalo Bills for two seasons (2004-05). He just completed his first season as Falcons offensive coordinator.
