The Broncos and Browns will interview Falcons offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey this week for their vacant head-coaching positions.

Denver executives, which will likely include soon-to-be Vice President of Football Operations John Elway, will travel to Atlanta on Friday to meet with Mularkey during the Falcons' playoff bye. It has not yet been announced when the Browns will interview the coach.

Mularkey's lone head-coaching stint was with the Bills from 2004-05. He led Buffalo to its last winning season with a 9-7 record in '04 before resigning after a 5-11 finish in '05. He spent time as a tight ends coach and offensive coordinator with the Dolphins from 2006-07 before becoming the Falcons' offensive coordinator in 2008.

The way we see it

Mularkey arrived alongside QB Matt Ryan and RB Michael Turner in 2008 and has helped turn the duo into one of the better quarterback-running back combinations in the NFL. While the Falcons' offense ranks in the middle of the pack overall this season, Atlanta finished the year ranked fourth in the league in first downs, third in third-down efficiency and first in fourth-down efficiency.

Both the Broncos and Browns have young players at the quarterback and running back positions and could be looking to Mularkey to develop their young players like he did Ryan and Turner in Atlanta.
