Dan Mullen Targeted By Gators

Florida Football Rumors: Dan Mullen Targeted By Gators

Mullen has plenty of knowledge of the program, as he served as Urban Meyer's offensive coordinator during a three-year span in which the Gators won two national titles.

Florida AthleticsDan Mullen was introduced as Florida head coach on Monday.

An illustrious career in Starkville seems to have been enough to jump Mississippi State's Dan Mullen up the ranks of D-1 coaching hires. Mullen and Gators athletic director Scott Stricklin, who was hired to replace Jeremy Foley, have a strong working relationship as Stricklin was Mississippi State's AD from 2010-16.

"I have such great memories of the championships we won during our time here and have a love for Florida", Mullen said Sunday in a statement.

After Mullen and athletic director John Cohen met with the team on Sunday night, many looked forward to what was ahead of them.

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 1966 Heisman Trophy victor at Florida, Spurrier led the program to its first national title 30 years later.

Mullen replaced former UF coach Jim McElwain, who was sacked October 29 and making $4.5 million a year. For a week, it looked like Kelly might pacify a frustrated fan base.

He made the safe choice, one that won't be wildly popular with the Florida faithful. He has 13 years of experience in the Southeastern Conference, knows Florida well, has recruited in the Sunshine State and led the Bulldogs to a bowl for a school-record eight consecutive years. He is 5-2 in bowls.

Mullen is 69-46 in nine seasons at Mississippi State, with an 8-4 record heading into a bowl game this year. Stricklin noted the 45-year-old coach's success in tutoring quarterbacks such as Alex Smith, Chris Leak, Tim Tebow, Dak Prescott and Nick Fitzgerald, which bodes well for his chances of coaxing better play from Gators signal-callers.
