NASHVILLE -- The Tennessee Titans have hired former Jacksonville Jaguars and Buffalo Bills head coach Mike Mularkey as tight ends coach on Ken Whisenhunts staff. 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 Buffalos coach in 2004-05. Mularkey and Whisenhunt previously worked together as assistants with the Pittsburgh Steelers. "I am excited to back in the league," Mularkey said Wednesday in a team release announcing the hire. "I took some time off for family time. I got a chance to do some things with them, which I havent gotten to do over the last 20 years of coaching. I am definitely excited to get back and excited to get back with Ken. We go way back in our relationship, back to when we were players in the NFL and even to college when he was at Georgia Tech and I was at Florida." Mularkey worked with the Steelers from 1996-2003 and spent his last three years in Pittsburgh as offensive co-ordinator. He spent two years with the Miami Dolphins as offensive co-ordinator in 2006 and tight ends coach in 2007. Mularkey was the Atlanta Falcons offensive co-ordinator from 2008-11. The Falcons went 43-21 during Mularkeys time in Atlanta. "Mike brings a wealth of experience, both as a co-ordinator and a head coach," Whisenhunt said in a release. "Selfishly, for me, he brings a lot to the table, having been in this situation before. There are things that I will use him for moving forward that will help us a team. He has had a lot of success in this league and we are lucky to have him." Mularkey played nine seasons in the NFL as a tight end with the Minnesota Vikings and Steelers. He caught 102 passes for 1,222 yards in 114 career games. Mularkey began his coaching career as an offensive line coach for Concordia College. He worked with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as a quality control coach in 1994 and a tight ends coach in 1995. "As a coach, I am diligent about the details of every little thing," Mularkey said. "I am very big into making sure my guys are prepared and I really like them to know what is going to happen before it happens. With my background and knowledge as a player and coach, I can be a resource. I do love what I do and they will see that from me." Youth Ben Grubbs Jersey . Play hard, play tough and play rough.

The third-year pro went shot for shot with Knicks star Carmelo Anthony down the stretch before nailing the most important one of the night. NEW YORK -- Not much heat from the Hawks for Jeremy Lin and the New York Knicks. Thats likely to change Thursday night when the show travels to Miami for Lin versus LeBron and some real Heat. Lin had 17 points and nine assists, sitting out most of the fourth quarter in a rare easy game during his remarkable run, and the Knicks tuned up for their trip by beating Atlanta 99-82 on Wednesday. Carmelo Anthony scored 15 points in his second game back from injury for the Knicks, who led the depleted Hawks by 25 points at halftime. New York bounced back from a loss to New Jersey on Monday and won for the ninth time in 11 games since Lin joined the rotation. The Knicks visit Miami on Thursday in their final game before the All-Star break, and Lins emergence has the Heats attention. "Its going to be a lot of, a lot of anticipation about this game," Anthony said. "Were going down there to win. Miami is playing great basketball right now. One of the hottest teams, if not the hottest team in the NBA. "Itll be a great game." LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and teammates have been asked repeatedly in recent days about the ex-Harvard guard, and coach Mike DAntoni was told the word out of Miami is the Heat will be waiting for the Knicks back-to-back Sports Illustrated cover boy. "At the airport?" he joked. Not quite. But whatever they do will provide more resistance than the Hawks, who trailed by as many as 30. Jeff Teague scored 18 points for the Hawks. They played without All-Star guard Joe Johnson, who left their loss at Chicago on Monday with a sore left knee and had to pull out of Sundays game in Orlando, and have lost three straight and five of six. "Coming into this game, being as depleted as we were, I still was hoping we could come out and just put together four solid quarters. We just didnt do that," Hawks coach Larry Drew said. The Knicks shot 52 per cent in the first half, scored 30 points in both periods, and led 60-35 at the break. "We are professionals. They just came out and they attacked us," Teague said. "Thats all I can really say." The Knicks lost their focus briefly midway through the third before pulling away again to lead 78-56 heading into the fourth. Lin watched the first 6-plus minutes of the final period before DAntoni curiously put him back in leading by 20 with 5:13 left. Lin still played only 33 minutes after he logged at least 36 in all but one of the previous 10 games. Hell likely need to do more against the Heat, who have won seven in a row and have the NBAs best record at 26-7. The Heat have been the NBAs biggest story since building their Big Three in 2010, but even theyve been playing in Linns shadow the last two weeks.ddddddddddddThat will change Thursday in a nationally televised game that James said could be "one of the most watched games weve had in a long time, especially with what Jeremy Lin is doing." But Lin isnt getting caught up in the hype. "I think for us, we want to make sure what were thinking about is we want to build momentum going into the All-Star break and we want to make a push after the All-Star break. And I think this is a good opportunity to build momentum," he said. "Its a big game, dont get me wrong. Were playing a great team, and its going to be a good evaluation of where were at. So from that end obviously were excited and ready for the challenge. But besides that, were just going try to stay consistent." The game against Atlanta came on the one-year anniversary of the Knicks acquisition of Anthony from Denver in a blockbuster trade that cost them four of their top six players. The results have been underwhelming -- 14-14 last season and 17-17 this season, and DAntoni acknowledged the high price the Knicks paid for the All-Star forward "depleted a lot of things." However, he said theyve built their depth back, and the potential was obvious in the first half, when all nine players who played scored. New additions Baron Davis and J.R. Smith could be an explosive second-team backcourt, and teamed up on a pretty alley-oop that Smith dropped in with his back to the hoop. Steve Novak is the 3-point specialist needed to space the floor so Lin and Anthony have room to drive into the lane. "The things are developing and well get our guys, everybody up to par, and if that happens then we should be fairly good," DAntoni said. Novak made five 3-pointers and scored 17 points. Landry Fields had 16, and Smith finished with 12. Davis had six assists in 14 minutes. Notes: Drew was disappointed that Josh Smith was passed over in favour of Bostons Rajon Rondo when Commissioner David Stern chose the injury replacement for Johnson. Smith averages 16 points and 9.6 rebounds, is top 15 in the league in blocks, rebounds and steals, and was already considered perhaps the biggest snub when reserves were chosen. "I really thought that he would get the invite once word was that Joe wouldnt be able to play," Drew said. "I mean, you look at Joshs numbers, he has good numbers. His numbers are good enough to be where he should be an All-Star. Why he didnt make it, I dont know." ... Knicks assistant Mike Woodson was the Hawks head coach from 2004-10. ...
