Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey was fired Thursday morning after his first season with the team, according to a tweet from ESPN's Adam Schefter. The Jags finished the season with a 2-14 record, the worst in franchise history.

Mularkey is the eighth NFL coach to be fired since the regular season ended at the end of December. According to the ESPN report, new general manager Dave Caldwell was the one who informed Mularkey this morning that he would not return to the team for next season. Caldwell would not give a timetable for naming a replacement, but said it would be "immediate" in order to begin the process of turning the team around from a historically awful season:

"I must do what I believe is best for the Jacksonville Jaguars and immediately explore every avenue possible to turn our football team around. For that to happen as seamlessly as we want, and as quickly as our fans deserve, I feel it is in everyone's best interests for an immediate and clean restart."

There could be more changes coming for the Jaguars, beyond a new head coach. The team gave its assistant coaches notice earlier in January that they could look for other jobs.
