The Jacksonville Jaguars have fired Mike Mularkey after one season.

"I informed Mike today that he will not return as head coach of the Jaguars," GM Dave Caldwell, who worked with Mularkey when both were with the Falcons, said in a statement. "I know Mike well and do not want anyone to misinterpret the rationale behind my decision. Mike is an excellent coach and I am sure he will succeed in his next stop in the NFL."

The Jaguars had a 2-14 record in 2012.
