NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Tennessee Titans have hired former Jacksonville Jaguars and Buffalo Bills head coach Mike Mularkey as tight ends coach.

Mularkey coached the Jaguars to a 2-14 record in 2012 and was fired at the end of the season. He also went 14-18 as Buffalo's coach in 2004-05. Mularkey and Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt previously worked together as assistants with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Mularkey said Wednesday in a team release that, "I am excited to be back in the league. I took some time off for family time."

Mularkey worked with the Steelers from 1996-2003 and spent his last three years in Pittsburgh as offensive coordinator. He also has been offensive coordinator for the Miami Dolphins (2006) and Atlanta Falcons (2008-11).
