Mike Mularkey has been fired by the Jacksonville Jaguars.
According to the Jags' official Twitter feed:

To a certain extent, getting let go after one season—albeit an atrocious one—is a little surprising. At the same time, Jacksonville's 2-14 campaign was unfortunately worse than it appeared.
There were no signs of improvement throughout the season and injuries aren't much of a legitimate reason, simply because every team endures injuries each year. On the bright side, a fresh start is once again in line, and Jacksonville also holds the No. 2 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.
There's only so much a team can fix within the span of one offseason, so let's check out what the Jags can do before next season kicks off.
