"When we sat down and talked, he was candid about going through it the first time in Buffalo," said the 31-year-old receiver, who recently signed with Jacksonville as a free agent, in comments to the Jaguars' official website. "I think he has been able to learn from that, so coming into this time he's a lot better at (being a head coach)."
Evans, who spent his first two years in the league playing for Mularkey when he coached Buffalo, signed a one-year deal with Jacksonville earlier this month after spending last season with the Baltimore Ravens.
"He knows more what to expect and I think that's a big part of it," Evans added. "The coaches and guys he has around him are a big part of it as well, and I think this staff is very, very good."
Evans played in nine games with the Ravens last year and caught only four passes for 74 yards.
