Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen has heard his name brought up in several different coaching rumors over the years, but this offseason could be a big one.
That’s because his former school, Florida, is looking for a coach, as is Tennessee — another big-name SEC program.
However, as the Bulldogs prepare for a game against Arkansas this weekend, Mullen continues to say all the right things. As you can see below, he reaffirmed his commitment to Mississippi State during his Monday press conference:
Mullen on the Tennessee job: “I love the one (job) I have. Everyone has an opinion on what I should and shouldn’t do.”

Obviously, that’s about the only thing Mullen can say right now, as it wouldn’t make much sense for him to express interest in another job while he’s working for the Bulldogs.
However, Mullen does seem content in Starkville, where he makes a competitive salary and has turned the Bulldogs into a competitive program on the national level.
What happens next remains to be seen, but it’s safe to say Mullen will continue to have plenty of suitors if he decides to leave Mississippi State.
