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." Keenan Allen Jersey .

Jackie Bradley Jr. hit a two-run single during Bostons four-run seventh inning, and the Red Sox beat the Atlanta Braves 6-3 on Tuesday night in their latest comeback following their longest losing streak in 20 years. Dustin Pedroia had three hits and Grady Sizemore went 2 for 5 with a go-ahead groundout in the seventh. The Red Sox snapped their 10-game losing streak on Monday, overcoming a five-run deficit to top Atlanta 8-6. Now they have a winning streak and a feeling that its their turn for some good breaks as they prepare to play two games against the Braves in Boston. "Its good for our self-esteem," said Jonny Gomes, who singled and scored on Bradleys hit in the seventh, and then had a highlight-worthy catch in right field in the eighth. Jon Lester (5-6) snapped a personal two-game losing streak by giving up three runs and eight hits in six innings. "To come here ... with that streak and end up getting two (wins) here is really big," Lester said. Koji Uehara worked the ninth for his 11th save. "More than anything, our guys are having fun playing the game," Boston manager John Farrell said. "It was a tough 10-game stretch we came through but theres been plenty of energy kind of injected back in the dugout." Farrell said bloop hits by Gomes and David Ortiz in the seventh were good signs that luck has changed for the Red Sox. "It was good to see maybe the worm turn a little bit with runners in scoring position," Farrell said. Braves starter Aaron Harang left with a 3-2 lead after the sixth. Anthony Varvaro (1-1) took the loss. Jason Heyward hit a first-inning homer and Chris Johnson drove in two runs for Atlanta. The Braves had two injury scares. Catcher Evan Gattis was a late scratch after straining his right wrist in batting practice. He sat on the bench with a brace. Shortstop Andrelton Simmons left in the eighth with inflammation in his rigght ankle.dddddddddddd "We dont see anything that is long-term," manager Fredi Gonzalez said of Simmons and Gattis. Simmons said the pain was "just a nagging thing. So hopefully it stops nagging." Harang gave up seven hits before Boston tagged the Braves bullpen in the seventh. Varvaro gave up one-out singles to Xander Bogaerts and Dustin Pedroia before left-hander Luis Avilan was summoned to face Ortiz. Ortiz, batting .283 against left-handers and .263 versus right-handers, hit an RBI single that made it 3-all. A day earlier, he homered and drove in four runs at Turner Field. He drew loud boos in the eighth when he grounded out and then broke his bat over his knee. After Ortiz tied it, Gomes blooper to right field loaded the bases. Sizemores broken-bat groundout drove in Pedroia for a 4-3 lead. After an intentional walk to David Ross, Bradley singled. The rally made a winner of Lester, who agreed with Farrells description of his outing as a "grind." "I made some decent pitches when I had to and minimized damage when I had to," Lester said. The Braves loaded the bases in the second but didnt score. Harang hit into a double play, and Heywards grounder to Pedroia ended the inning. Sizemore doubled with one out in the fourth and stole third. Gonzalez challenged the call, but a replay review showed Sizemore was safe. Ross hit a single that made it 2-all. Freddie Freemans first triple of the year set up the Braves go-ahead run in the fifth. Justin Upton walked and Johnson hit a blooper that fell in right, turning into a run-scoring forceout at second. Gomes delivered the defensive highlight of the game with his diving catch on Gerald Lairds sinking liner in the eighth. NOTES: Heywards homer was the first allowed by Lester to a left-handed hitter in 180 at-bats, including post-season games, since July 18, 2013. ...
