Broncos interviewing Mike Mularkey Friday

The Denver Broncos announced via Twitter (where else for them, considering that's how they fired Josh McDaniels) that they'll interview Falcons offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey for their head coaching position on Friday.

Mularkey's name's been bandied about for many of the openings around the NFL recently, and with good reason -- while offensive coordinator with the Steelers from 2001-2003, his offenses ranked 2nd, 3rd and 18th in yards and 3rd, 5th and 22nd in points scored, respectively.

That earned him the head coaching gig with the Buffalo Bills, where after two years he resigned with a 14-18 record, which is actually pretty respectable given that it's the Bills.

Mularkey's spent the past three years as offensive coordinator for Mike Smith's Falcons. In the process, he's helped the team make the playoffs two out of three years, developed Matt Ryan into a Pro Bowl-caliber quarterback, and his offenses ranked 6th, 16th, and 16th in yards and 10th, 13th and 5th in total points scored.

In other words, Mularkey's career trajectory was straight rolling, until it got completely derailed by a stint in Buffalo. It's taken three strong years with the Falcons to solidify him as another head coaching candidate and clearly, people have taken notice.

There's certainly no guarantee that the Broncos will pull the trigger on Mularkey based on Friday's interview, but given his head coaching experience, offensive prowess, and time working with a struggling organization, he's certainly got a good shot at landing the gig.

they allso need a good quarterback coach like gary kubaik he healped john elway to win a super bowl or some one that is a good fundmentails teacher and is good at spoting habits that deffences key off on . and john gruden is the better one because of the detailed fundmentails he teaches to palyers all of the time if you hire him he will be an postive  and if he leaves the team will be headed in the rite direction and the same if you hire bill chower , the former super bowl champions had head coachs that teach all fundmentails all of the time till it came as an automatic reaction in game time ,thats the differance in winning and loosing.

they did not fire Josh via twitter. That is a lie and false reporting.  They let the public know via twitter after the decision was made.  A reporter shoudl report facts, this guy obviously does not like Denver and should not be allowed to report on this team again.

yeah i don't know about this...  you could say that he did head coach the bills..  and they did do ok but head coaching is different than being the MAN..  maybe he isn't made to be the man..  i like him as a coordinator where he is good..  look else where fins!  dig deep..that team has a ton of talent and only a draft pick on D to make them better.. 
we'll see who they lose but that team is a good pick for a great HEAD coach if they can get one.  Tons of talent..  even minuse Williams.
