Mularkey to JAX

Mike Mularkey is supposed to be named the next head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars, presumably erasing the largest threat to the Panthers losing OC Rob Chudzinski. To this point, Chud has only interviewed with the Jags, and Carolina hasn't been asked permission to allow him to talk to others.

As of now, that's the first new hire of the 2012 season (Romeo Crennel is also staying). The Rams and Dolphins both have auxiliary candidates but may be sent scrambling, based on Jeff Fisher; Tampa Bay appears to be looking at veteran coaches (Mike Sherman, Marty Schottenheimer).

The remaining bad news? Oakland and Indy are still in the process as well, the Oakland job opening just today. The Indy job will be open, soon.

The upside is that Hue Jackson being released in Oakland would make for a fantastic replacement OC, if we required one. Like Chudzinski, Jackson is a Coryell guy, and he's had success everywhere he's been - and didn't deserve to be let go in the power struggle in Oakland.
