Florida Gators To Hire Dan Mullen Away From Mississippi State

Florida Gators To Hire Dan Mullen Away From Mississippi Stateā€

The Florida Gators filled their head coaching vacancy on Sunday with a familiar face.

Three days after Mississippi State's regular season came to an end with a loss to Ole Miss in the Egg Bowl, Dan Mullen was officially announced as the new head coach at Florida. In their nine years here, Dan and Megan have been wonderful ambassadors to Mississippi State University and the entire city of Starkville.

During his time with the Rebels, Mullen has an overall record of 69-46, including a 33-39 mark in conference play.

Two of the diamonds on Meghan Markle's engagement ring are from Princess Diana's personal collection. The couple spoke of how important it was to include Princess Diana in their engagement.

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. It's a tribute to Dan and to MSU that he has drawn the interest of several premier football programs around the country.

"In anticipation of this development, MSU has already begun the process of an orderly and expeditious transition to new and exciting leadership for our football program".

Mullen had a deal at Mississippi State that ran through 2021 and paid him $4.5 million a year. From 2005 to 2008, Mullen's Gator squads never averaged less than 28.6 points per game, while winning two national titles, and they averaged well over 4o in 2007 and 2008.

Hundreds of Sufi Muslims were slaughtered during Friday prayers in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula by suspected Islamic militants. Images from inside the building showed dozens of bodies wrapped in blood-soaked cloth lined up on the carpeted floor.

Some might be concerned about whether Mullen has the ideal personality to bring genuine buzz to Florida football, but should Gator fans really care as long as he fixes the offense?

The Gators fired former coach Jim McElwain last month amid reports of a personality conflict with administrators. For a week, it looked like Kelly might pacify a frustrated fan base.

Still, the 45-year-old Mullen has a resume that's hard to ignore.

The campaign says former restaurant employees and a former customer don't remember Nelson working there or Moore eating there. The women who have accused Moore are "Trump voters", the president said, before again stating that Moore "totally denies it".

Running backs coach Greg Knox has been selected as State's interim head coach for the Bulldogs' pending bowl game. He is 5-2 in bowls. Under Meyer at Utah, Mullen was responsible for the evolution of eventual number one pick, Alex Smith.
