Florida Gators Reportedly Finalizing Deal With Mississippi State’s Dan Mullen For Next Head Coach
By Fox Sports // November 26, 2017
Mullen spent four years (2005-08) as Florida’s offensive coordinator
GAINESVILLE, FLORIDA (FOX Sports) – Florida has targeted Mississippi State’s Dan Mullen as its next football coach, planning to bring back to Gainesville the guy who helped develop quarterbacks Alex Smith, Tim Tebow and Dak Prescott.
The Gators and Mullen could have a deal in place later Sunday, a person familiar with the search told The Associated Press. The person spoke to the AP on the condition of anonymity because no formal agreement had been reached.
Yahoo Sports first reported Florida’s intentions.
Spurned by Chip Kelly and seemingly unwilling to risk waiting for UCF’s Scott Frost to possibly do the same, Florida athletic director Scott Stricklin turned to Mullen. Stricklin and Mullen worked together in Starkville, Mississippi, from 2009 to 2016. Stricklin was Mississippi State’s athletic director for seven of those years.
