The Tennessee Titans hired Mike Mularkey on a permanent basis, removing his interim tag and making him the 18th head coach in franchise history on January 16, 2016. He initially took over the team as the interim head coach on Nov. 3 and coached the remaining nine games of the 2015 season.
Mularkey has 21 years of NFL coaching experience, including three-plus seasons as a head coach and eight as an offensive coordinator, with coaching stops in Jacksonville, Atlanta, Miami, Buffalo, Pittsburgh and Tampa Bay. In five of his eight seasons as a coordinator, Mularkey teams went to the playoffs.
As a former NFL tight end, Mularkey played a total of 114 games in nine seasons with the Minnesota Vikings and Pittsburgh Steelers. His experience as a player has molded his style as a coach – emphasizing physical, smart play. Including his rookie preseason with the 49ers, Mularkey spent his career playing for three of the NFL legendary coaches in Bill Walsh, Bud Grant and Chuck Noll. As an assistant coach, Mularkey has served on the staffs of Sam Wyche, Bill Cowher, Nick Saban, Cam Cameron, Mike Smith and Ken Whisenhunt.
In his two seasons (2014-15) working with the tight ends in Tennessee, Mularkey guided TE Delanie Walker to franchise and career marks. In consecutive seasons, he set the franchise mark for receiving yards by a tight end with 890 (2014) and 1,088 (2015) and totaled 157 grabs over the two seasons, the second-highest total by an NFL tight end. Last year, Walker led NFL tight ends in receptions with 94 and earned his first Pro Bowl selection.
Mularkey joined the Titans after one season (2012) with the Jacksonville Jaguars as the franchise fourth head coach, and four seasons (2008-11) with the Atlanta Falcons as offensive coordinator. Over the four-year time span with the Falcons, the team advanced to the postseason three times, ranked ninth in the NFL in total yards (354.8 per game), seventh in points (24.5), eighth in rushing yards (125.7), third in fewest turnovers (84), fourth in fewest sacks allowed (93), and sixth in third down conversions (44.2).
In three of the four years with the Falcons, Mularkey offense produced a 3,000-yard passer, a 1,000-yard receiver and a 1,000-yard rusher in the same season. His guidance saw the rise of QB Matt Ryan, WR Roddy White, RB Michael Turner; and the continued growth of TE Tony Gonzalez, who totaled 233 receptions and 19 touchdowns in their three years together. In 2010, Sporting News named Mularkey oordinator of the Year. /p>
Prior to his time with the Falcons, Mularkey spent two seasons (2006-07) with the Miami Dolphins as the offensive coordinator in 2006, and tight ends coach in 2007. He joined the Dolphins after serving as head coach for the Buffalo Bills for two seasons (2004-05).
Eight seasons (1996-2003) with the Pittsburgh Steelers preceded Mularkey time with the Bills. Mularkey served as the tight ends coach in his first five seasons. He molded Mark Bruener into an outstanding run-blocking tight end, while Jerome Bettis eclipsed the 1,000-yard rushing mark for five straight years. His final three seasons were spent as offensive coordinator, during which time he directed two top five offenses (3rd, 2001 and 5th, 2002) and earned Assistant Coach of the Year in 2001 from the Pro Football Writers of America.
Mularkey entered the coaching ranks in 1993, overseeing the offensive line at Concordia College. He transitioned into the NFL in 1994, where he began as a quality control coach for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers before being promoted to tight ends coach the following season (1995).
Selected in the ninth round by the San Francisco 49ers in 1983, Mularkey was waived following his first training camp. He was signed by the Vikings, where he played for six seasons, before finishing his career with three years at Pittsburgh. He totaled 102 receptions and 1,222 career yards.
A graduate of Northeast High School in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, Mularkey played quarterback and earned a scholarship to the University of Florida. He was a three-year letterman at tight end for the Gators from 1979-82. He and his wife, Betsy, have two sons — Patrick and Shane.
