Morehead State University offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Craig Mullins has died at the age of 45, according to CBS WKYT.
Mullins passed away this afternoon after a short battle with cancer. He is survived by his wife and two sons, plus multiple extended family members.
Morehead State’s athletic department issued a statement, regarding Mullins’ passing.
“We are deeply saddened by Craig’s passing,” Director of Athletics Brian Hutchinson said. “Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends. Craig was a terrific person, and we are grateful for the time he spent on Morehead State’s football staff. He was liked and respected by everyone.”
Before coming to Morehead State, Mullins served in the same positions at NAIA program Georgetown College for 16 years. During his tenure there, the team went 155-36 and won championships in 2000 and 2001. Mullins also played at Georgetown, winning letters in four years and two Academic All-America awards.
Morehead State only went 7-17 in Mullins’ time with the Eagles and was never a top offensive squad, but one thing is certain. This man was loved by many and will be deeply missed.
Campus Sports sends its condolences to both Morehead State and the Mullins family.
