Mississippi State head coach Dan Mullen’s press conference Tuesday was going like any other meeting with the media until one reporter dared to ask him about an injured player.
Not happy about it for some reason, Mullen said, “I’ll never comment on an injury again because you guys obviously don’t need me to comment on injuries because you know more than I do.”
Mullen went on to say, “You report more than I would ever say, for the benefit of young people, not so you can get a scoop out, and their futures. We’ll never comment on an injury again in this program again so please don’t ever ask.”
I get it, after reviewing film, practicing and all the other things big time coaches have to do talking to the media and answering the same questions can be irritating. What’s I’m curious to see is if Mullen actually sticks to his promise.
