Mike Mularkey's son among 3 arrested
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- Chapel Hill police say the son of new Jacksonville Jaguars coach Mike Mularkey is among three former North Carolina athletes arrested on cocaine possession charges.
Police say Shane Michael Mularkey was among the three arrested. The 21-year-old Mularkey played in all 13 games for the Tar Heels in 2009, but school spokesman Kevin Best said he left the team after the 2010 season.
A Jaguars spokesman says the team is aware of the arrest, adding that it is a personal matter and that Mike Mularkey has no comment at this time.
Also arrested Friday were 21-year-old Nicole Marie Suarez and 20-year-old Jacob Carl Groeschen.
Suarez was a former member of the school's cross country team who Best said hadn't been involved in the sport since September 2010.
Best said Groeschen was a walk-on quarterback in 2010 and served as a student manager during the 2011 season. He left the Tar Heels after the team's bowl game.
