New Jacksonville Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell is unlikely to keep coach Mike Mularkey, according to sources inside and outside the organization, although no final decisions have been made.

Despite the fact that the two men worked together in Atlanta, Caldwell is thought to prefer a new head coach such as 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman or Falcons defensive coordinator Mike Nolan, according to sources.

The Jaguars gave their assistant coaches permission last week to look for other jobs.

In the 51-year-old Mularkeys first season, the Jaguars finished 2-14 in 2012, the worst record in franchise history.

Jacksonville lost eight games by 16 points or more this season. Not even Jacksonville's inaugural team in 1995 -- a group comprised of mostly rookies and street free agents -- was overmatched as often. Coach Tom Coughlin's rag-tag bunch finished 4-12 back then, losing four games by at least 16 points. The 4-12 record had been the worst in franchise history.

Mularkey, who also has coached the Bills, has a 16-32 career record.

Only way Nolan takes that job is if they give him Belichick $$$. Their secondary sucks, as well as their pass rush.

There is nothing special about their offense either. Blackmon and Shorts are good, but aside from that they have nothing. MJD is aging and in the final year of his deal.

The only two jobs I can see Nolan taking are the Eagles possibly or Chargers (although they're not rumored to be interested in him)

not sure why people would think he is stupid to go there. he has a prior relationship with the gm, the expectations are **** near nothing 2-14, 4-12 would make him look like a hero. 1 good draft and he could make the D formidable. The O has mjd, shorts looks pretty good and blackmon turned on when he had a quasi decent qb throwing him the ball. i hope he doesnt leave but whats so stupid about him if he leaves?

It's dumb to take the Jags HC job they expect a coach to be successful the first year without any good players. The talent is so bad there that it had half the people in Atl convinced that Kotter was the worse OC in football before coming here

Seriously giving MM only one year with that talent not even giving him a chance to get better talent on the team and see what he can do.

I am glad MM is gone from the Falcons, but seriously WTH is with the Jags
