A new NFL era begins.
A new era in Jacksonville, Florida.
That was the message from Jaguars coach Mike Mularkey on Thursday morning when he took the stage at the NFL’s annual Media Day, as the league announced that Jim Caldwell will take over as the Jaguars head coach for the 2019 season.
Mularkey has spent the last seven years as the head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars, which are in the midst of their first-ever season as the #2 seed in the AFC South and are just one game behind the New England Patriots for the top seed.
Mula’s first year in charge was a massive turnaround, and he is looking forward to getting to the start of a new era.
“My expectation is that I will be here for the next seven years,” Mularkeys message read.
“I think I can be here until 2022.
I look forward to the journey ahead.””
We have some great young players coming through, and there is a great future ahead of us.
I look forward to the journey ahead.”
Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell told reporters that the team is confident that MularKEY will succeed, and Mularks success will be rewarded.
“Jim has been a tremendous leader in our locker room,” Caldwell said.
I know we have a good group of young guys that we believe can take us to a championship. “
This is a young organization, but I know Jim and the staff will take the next step.
“The Jaguars are ready for a new challenge and a fresh start, and to have that opportunity, I am very excited.””
Caldwell said he had spoken with Mular KEY before his announcement, and the two agreed that Mula was the best candidate to lead the franchise into the future.””

“It’s a great opportunity to go to a new place.
I don’t think there’s anything you can’t do, and this is a big opportunity for him.
I think it’s a real good fit.”
“He’s got the right people around him. “

MularKEY said he was confident that he would have a successful first season, but added that he’s looking forward “to a challenge.”
The move was welcomed by some fans, who took to Twitter to praise the move.
Mules’ first season in Jacksonville was marked by a rash of injuries, suspensions and poor quarterback play.
In the playoffs, the Jaguars were swept by the Tennessee Titans in the first round.
Injuries to key players including wide receiver Justin Blackmon, linebacker Anthony Chickillo and running back Derrick Henry made things difficult for the team.
Mets fans were even more disappointed than the Jaguars fans after the franchise went 7-9, finishing with just one winning season.
