Mike Zimmer wants to put together a coaching all-star team on the offensive side of the ball. Norv Turner is reportedly on his way to take over OC duties, and now it’s beeen reported that former Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey is considering taking a positional coach job in Minnesota.
Mularkey also has an offer from the Tennessee Titans and is just making up his mind where he wants to work. It’s nice having options.
You old-timers will remember that Mularkey was in Minnesota once before, as a player in the eighties. He’s had multiple stops as a coach in the NFL, including the Steelers, Dolphins and Falcons where he was OC, and Buffalo where he was head coach.
Mularkey has been a tight ends coach in the NFL and that could be his role in Minnesota. He also could be up for offensive line coach, though the Vikings do have a good in-house option at that position in Jeff Davidson.
Mularkey has been out of coaching since being fired as Jaguars coach after the 2012 season.
