In the time he spent coaching wide receivers and quarterbacks in Arizona (2009-2012), McNulty worked closely with Titans head coach Ken Whisenhunt, then the head coach for the Cardinals.

With the Buccaneers, McNulty guided rookie quarterback Mike Glennon to rookie franchise marks for passing yards and touchdowns. Furthermore, Glennon registered the top passer rating (82.0) among NFL rookies in 2013 and was named to the Pro Football Writers of America All-Rookie team.

Prior to joining Tampa Bay, McNulty spent four seasons (2009-12) with the Arizona Cardinals, three (2009-11) as the wide receivers coach and one (2012) as quarterbacks coach. Under his direction, wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald was selected to three Pro Bowls and earned two All-Pro selections (2009, 2011). Fitzgerald also led the NFL in touchdown receptions (13) in 2010 and became the franchise leader in receiving yards, receiving touchdowns and 100-yard games during their time together.

Between NFL coaching positions, McNulty spent five seasons (2004-08) with Rutgers in varying capacities.

Notably, his 2007 offense set school records for total offense (5,841 yards), points scored (421) and first downs (295). The offensive unit also became the first in NCAA history to include a 3,000-yard passer (Mike Teel-3,140), a 2,000-yard rusher (Ray Rice-2,069) and two 1,000-yard receivers (Kenny Britt-1,232; Tiquan Underwood-1,100) in a single season.

McNulty began his coaching career in 1991 as a graduate assistant for the University of Michigan, where he spent four years before coaching wide receivers for another three seasons at the University of Connecticut. He joined the NFL ranks with the Jacksonville Jaguars in 1998 as their quality control coach, where he stayed until 2002. He followed his time with the Jaguars with a single season coaching wide receivers for the Dallas Cowboys in 2003.
