Mullen leaving MSU for Florida

Mullen leaving MSU for Florida

Mullen, 45, will replace former coach Jim McElwain after he was sacked on October 31 in the wake of Florida's 42-7 loss to Georgia that dropped the Gators' record to 3-4.

Sports, Mississippi State head coach Dan Mullen is Florida's new top target and a decision is expected by the end of the day Sunday.

Mullen has been with the Bulldogs for nine years and is 69-46. Schiano has served as Ohio State's defensive coordinator for two seasons after spending three years as the head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Bulldogs are 8-4 and 4-4 in SEC play this season.

A source close to the MSU program said "doesn't look good for the home team" on the Mullen to Florida reports.

Trump took a shot at NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, saying he "has lost control of the hemorrhaging league. Trump is an avid golf player and owns a number of golf courses around the world.

Mississippi State knows Dan Mullen is a pretty hot commodity these days and is prepared to "go all in" to try and keep him in Starkville, a source told SI Friday morning. The school had conversations with Chip Kelly and Scott Frost, who both indicated better fits may be available at a place other than a high-profile SEC school.

He reunites with former Mississippi State Athletic Director Scott Stricklin, who now leads the Department of Athletics at the University of Florida. Kelly reportedly interviewed for the Florida job a week ago but it's unclear if he ever had a formal offer from the Gators. The unbeaten season comes just two seasons after the Knights went winless.
