The Denver Broncos were scheduled to interview the Atlanta Falcons' offensive coordinator, Mike Mularkey, on Friday in Atlanta. However, Mularkey canceled the meeting on Thursday afternoon. Mularkey cited the need to prepare for the Falcons' playoff game next weekend. However, Mularkey will still interview with the Cleveland Browns on Saturday, because he agreed to an interview with them first.
Mularkey is already one of five coaches the Broncos have publicly announced their interest in to date. The others include New York Giants' defensive coordinator Perry Fewell, New Orleans Saints' defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, Broncos interim head coach Eric Studesville and Stanford head coach Jim Harbaugh. Fewell, Mularkey, Studesville and Williams have all had previous experience with the Buffalo Bills this past decade.
Fewell and Studesville will have their interviews in the next few days, while the Broncos continue to gain the Saints' permission to speak with Williams. Harbaugh is being sought after by the San Francisco 49ers and the Miami Dolphins, making him the hot head coaching candidate this offseason.
