Mullen reaches agreement with Florida

Former and current MSU players react to Mullen leaving

Mississippi State football coach Dan Mullen is in the last stages of becoming next coach of the Florida Gators according to multiple reports.

Mullen is 69-46 in nine seasons with the Bulldogs, including an 8-4 mark this season.

Former Mississippi State Athletic Director Scott Sticklin is now Athletic Director at Florida and has reportedly been in contact with Mullen about the position.

Mullen also has a history at Florida.

Former Gators coach Jim McElwain was sacked in late October after the team was beaten by Georgia.

Mullen previously spent four years (2005-08) as Florida's offensive coordinator and won two national championships while guiding Tebow to the top of the school record books. Stricklin was Mississippi State's athletic director for seven of those years. He's now deciding whether to take the open Nebraska job or stay at UCF.

Donald Trump posts weird reply to tweet accusing him of stoking racism
According to Yahoo Sports , the Ball-Trump feud is not just intriguing, but a bit of marketing genius on the part of Ball. On Sunday, Trump tweeted that he "should have left them in jail!" Trump said in a third early-morning tweet.

Mullen has two connections to Florida.

Mullen helped develop quarterbacks Alex Smith, Tim Tebow and Dak Prescott.

Foley didn't interview Mullen for either of his most recent failed football hires - Muschamp and McElwain - and those decisions have sent the Gators football program to a spiral of irrelevancy.

Mullen was hired at Mississippi State in December of 2008, replacing Sylvester Croom.

Florida fired McElwain under odd circumstances in late October after McElwain made a vague reference to death threats in a press conference and refused to provide details of them to Florida officials.
