According to Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times:
Former Bears coach Lovie Smith interviewed for three NFL head-coaching vacancies but the respective clubs picked other candidates.
So Smith is expected to sit out the 2013 NFL season and reconsider his options next offseason, according to a league source.
2013 would certainly be an interesting season without Lovie Smith on the sidelines. It would also be shocking given his resume.
As reported by Mike Jones of the Washington Post:
[Washington] Redskins defensive backs coach Raheem Morris is scheduled to interview with the Cleveland Browns for their defensive coordinator position, a person with knowledge of the situation confirmed.
The Browns are a young and talented team possessing much potential. A coach such as Morris suits well to develop a growing franchise.
After one season with the Jacksonville Jaguars, Mike Mularkey was fired, per the team's official Twitter feed.
Finishing 2-14, nothing new has yet to come of age for Mularkey.
This is somewhat surprising, though, because Mularkey was the Atlanta Falcons' offensive coordinator from 2008 through 2011. In that span he developed Matt Ryan and was responsible for one of pro football's most consistently explosive offenses.
As the 2013 offseason progresses, Mularkey deserves consideration from anyone needing an offensive mindset.
