Default Mularkey offered job in Miami

MIAMI -- Former Buffalo Bills coach Mike Mularkey has been offered the job as offensive coordinator of the Miami Dolphins, a person close to the discussions said Saturday.

Mularkey met with Dolphins coach Nick Saban, then flew home to Buffalo on Saturday to decide whether to accept the job, said the person, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the team has not confirmed the offer.

Scott Linehan, Saban's offensive coordinator last season, departed Thursday to become coach of the St. Louis Rams.

Mularkey, a native of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and a former star at the University of Florida, unexpectedly resigned last week after going 5-11 in his second season with the Bills. He had three years left on his contract.

His resignation came after the Bills fired five assistant coaches and owner Ralph Wilson shook up his front office, hiring Hall of Fame coach Marv Levy as general manager.

A former NFL tight end, Mularkey spent 10 years as an NFL assistant, including three as the Pittsburgh Steelers' offensive coordinator, before becoming the Bills' head coach.

Buffalo went 14-18 and ranked 25th and 28th in offense in two seasons under Mularkey, but he helped the Steelers' offense twice rank in the top five. Pittsburgh's Kordell Stewart and Tommy Maddox had their best seasons at quarterback under Mularkey.

Linehan helped the Dolphins improve from 29th in total offense in 2004 to 14th last season. Dolphins spokesman Harvey Greene said the team had no comment on the search for a replacement.

A woman answering the phone at Mularkey's house said he was unavailable.
