Mullen leaving MSU for Florida

Florida Football Rumors: Dan Mullen Targeted By Gators

Mullen won two national championships at Florida as offensive coordinator under Urban Meyer.

As a bad season wound down, the University of Florida got a head start on the search for a new football coach by firing Jim McElwain.

The Gators have turned to former Mississippi State head coach Dan Mullen after getting spurned by several coaches although they are saying different.

Mississippi State president Mark Keenum confirmed Mullen's exit Sunday night.

Former Mississippi State Athletic Director Scott Sticklin is now Athletic Director at Florida and has reportedly been in contact with Mullen about the position.

The Florida offense has been beyond anemic, only scoring three offensive touchdowns against a Charles Kelly led FSU defense since 2014.

Mullen replaced former UF coach Jim McElwain, who was sacked October 29 and making $4.5 million a year.

The informant told police that Lopez-Abrego was the first person to stab the victim, thrusting a 15-inch knife into the chest. On September 29, patrol officers stopped a vehicle driven by another MS-13 member in which Lopez-Abrego was a passenger.

Running backs coach Greg Knox has been selected as State's interim head coach for the Bulldogs' pending bowl game.

"I'm fired up. I'm excited", he said moments after departing a private jet. He is 5-2 in bowls.

In nine seasons in Starkville, the 45-year-old Mullen was 69-46 with the Bulldogs and 33-39 in the SEC, a respectable record given the school's mediocre history. He played a substantial role in the college careers of Alex Smith (Utah), Tebow (Florida), Dak Prescott (Mississippi State) and current Mississippi State starter Nick Fitzgerald.

"Coach Mullen will do a tremendous job in developing accountability and toughness through a well-coordinated strength and conditioning program".

"I know he was contacted, but that's all I know at this point", Meyer said during a conference call previewing Ohio State's Big Ten championship game Saturday with Wisconsin.

Although Schiano has been an assistant at Ohio State the last two seasons, he posted a 68-67 record as Rutgers coach from 2001-11 and had an unsuccessful two-year stint coaching the NFL's Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
