Dec 9, 2012; Jacksonville FL, USA; Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey talks to a referee in the first quarter of their game against the New York Jets at EverBank Field. The New York Jets beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 17-10. Mandatory Credit: Phil Sears-USA TODAY SportsBlack Monday is over, but today saw one more firing, with Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey being let go, according to Adam Schefter.

It shouldn't be a complete surprise, particularly after a franchise-worst 2-14 season, and a new GM on the way.

Mularkey has a career coaching record of 16-32, which includes 2 seasons with the Buffalo Bills

This 2-14 season in Jacksonville was even worse than their expansion season, when they went 4-12.

When the Jaguars find a new GM, he will most likely bring in his own coach to take over the team.

We'll see if owner Shahid Kahn's obsession with Tim Tebow makes Jacksonville a less attractive destination for qualified GM and coaching candidates.

As much as the people of Jacksonville might like a gimmick like that, it would be hard for a serious GM or coach to want to embrace a circus like that.
