Florida targeting Dan Mullen

Florida expected to hire Dan Mullen

Mississippi State football coach Dan Mullen is in the last stages of becoming next coach of the Florida Gators according to multiple reports.

During his time with the Rebels, Mullen has an overall record of 69-46, including a 33-39 mark in conference play. Assuming this deal gets done, Mullen will be reunited with AD Scott Stricklin, who worked with the coach from 2010-2016 when he was serving in that capacity at Mississippi State.

Mullen also reportedly was under consideration for the Tennessee job.

If Gruden doesn't take the job, the Vols will look at two other coaching candidates, according to SEC Country's Brian Stultz.


Florida swung and missed at top target Chip Kelly and then reportedly turned its attention to Mullen and Central Florida coach Scott Frost.

The Gators went 4-7 this season for just their second losing season since 1979. He was a part of two national championship teams in 2006 and 2008, when he served as Urban Meyer's offensive coordinator.

You may remember Mullen for that time he flubbed his way through an explanation of Mississippi State's handling of five-star recruit Jeffrey Simmons, who'd been videotaped beating the hell out of woman and was subsequently suspended for one measly game. "I'm fortunate to be the head coach and (athletic director) John (Cohen) and Dr. Keenum have both told me they want me to continue to be the head coach here-before the game they did, we'll see what they say right now".
