John McNulty, the Jacksonville Jaguars' quality control coach the last two seasons, has been promoted to wide receivers coach. McNulty, 31, replaces Pete Carmichael, the team's wide receivers coach for the first five seasons, who was named offensive coordinator of the Cleveland Browns this week.
"John McNulty was an outstanding young college coach when we brought him here," said head coach Tom Coughlin. "He has been involved in our offensive game planning, and his contributions with the computer and statistical work have been an asset to our coaching staff. This is a good opportunity for John, and one for which he has shown he is ready."
McNulty joined the Jaguars coaching staff in February 1998 and is now entering his 10th season in coaching. He began in 1991 as a graduate assistant coach at the University of Michigan, coaching there through 1994. McNulty spent the 1995 to '97 seasons as wide receivers/special teams coach at the University of Connecticut prior to coming to Jacksonville.
