Default How far we have fallen: Mike Mularkey cancels interview

Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey has informed the Denver Broncos he will not interview for their coaching opening on Friday as planned.

Mularkey made the decision so he could focus instead on the Falcons' playoff game next week, a team source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, who first reported the development.

John Elway, the Broncos' new executive vice president of football operations, who is spearheading the search, said via his official Twitter account: "I respect the decision that Mike Mularkey has made to not interview with the Broncos at this time."

Mularkey still will go through with his previously scheduled interview Saturday with the Cleveland Browns. He is doing so because they called first and he feels a certain sense of obligation, a team source told Schefter

Is it wrong to be relieved by his decision?

Perhaps Elway not knowing his name annoyed him? Oh well, I'm not too broken up about it.

I think our rep is tarished a bit right now but, honestly guys this guy is hardly an A+ hire doing this. If I was a HC possibility I would hesitate too coming here. Top it off unproven FO impatient fanbase that expects instant turnaround. I would think how fans turned on McD's would scare off some as well. We aren't really that stable right now.

The way fans turned on a guy that made a ton of controversial moves, produced our worst season ever, and was caught cheating? Any coach who would let that scare him doesn't have much confidence in his ability to get it done.

I doubt it. Every coach knows that if they run a franchise into the ground, the fans and owner are going to be mad. The management thing may be accurate though. They also probably don't want to come try fixing the complete mess McDaniels made of this franchise.

Oh I understand why fans turned on McD's but, HC'ing is like a frat they stick together. I'm sure some would turn us down because of it.

The way fans turned on him before he'd coached a single game? Yeah, I could see that scaring off some folks, especially someone who had coached in some sub-par places and been run off quickly before.

I wonder if he was mad that Elway called him Mark. I wonder if he was, "if they don't even know my name, what chance do I have?".

Honestly, I think the Elway/Xanders GM team is the most unknown and therefore unappealing thing about the Denver job right now. At the end of the day though, it's still a historied team, in a great city, and is run as a class organization. This is not a big deal. Mualrky shouldn't want to do two interviews in the middle of the playoffs, and I'm sure Cleveland is the easier interview for him because of his ties to Holmgren. I bet if we still don't have a coach after Atlanta's season is over, Mularkey interviews with us.

He is busy with post-season issues and will be interviewed at a later time.

Most fans gave him a fair shake. There are extremists in every fanbase.

Huh? There isn't a fanbase in the NFL that wouldn't have turned on the guy under the circumstances. The guy wrecked the team and got caught cheating in the process.
