(CBS SPORTS) – The coaching carousel is spinning at a fast pace, and it has taken Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen back in Gainseville, Florida, as the new head coach of the Florida Gators, two sources confirm to CBS Sports.
Mullen, the Gators’ former two-time national championship-winning offensive coordinator, finishes 69-46 as coach of the Bulldogs, having led them to bowl games in each of the last seven seasons. They will earn another postseason trip following an 8-4 campaign in 2017.
Mullen also led MSU to the No. 1 ranking in the first ever College Football Playoff Rankings in 2014 and an Orange Bowl trip later that year.
“Megan and I are very excited to get back to Gainesville and the University of Florida,” Mullen said in a statement released by the school.
“I have such great memories of the championships we won during our time here and have a love for Florida. We are happy to be coming back to such a supportive administration, staff, student body and fan base, which is the premier football program in the country. We will give relentless effort in everything that we do on and off the field. Our commitment will match the passion that the Gator Nation has for this program.”
