Football coaching merrygoround: Bills get their man

Mike Mularkey, who spent the last three seasons as the offensive coordinator for the Pittsburgh Steelers, was named today as the new head man in Buffalo. The Bills have a solid trio of skills players–Drew Bledsoe as QB, Travis Henry at RB and Eric Moulds at WR–and a proven guy like Mularkey, nine years a tight end in the NFL, ought to be able to do better than last season’s 15.2 points/game and 30th place in overall offense. The hiring leaves Chicago and Oakland as the only teams without coaches; seems like St. Louis is going to stick with Martz another year even though many observers don’t see why.
