Dan Mullen dodges questions about Miami interview


Word on the street is that Mississippi State football coach Dan Mullen interviewed for the head coaching vacancy at Miami earlier this week, but Mullen himself dodged questions about it at a recent media appearance.

According to Michael Bonner of The Clarion-LedgerMullen appeared at the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame and refused to comment on the situation.

“I’m not talking about any of that,” Mullen said. “Every year I come here, every single year, you guys ask me the same questions. I’m not going to waste my time commenting on rumors on the Internet.”

“I haven’t met with (Mississippi State athletic director) Scott (Stricklin) if he’s going to keep me. I might be,” Mullen said in jest. “We haven’t had our end-of-the-year meeting yet.”

Despite Mullen’s comments, it wouldn’t be at all surprising if he ended up leaving Starkville for Coral Gables. He has gone 54-35 (26-30 SEC) in seven years with the Bulldogs, doing quite well for himself, but is about to lose two key players. Quarterback Dak Prescott is graduating and receiver De’Runnya Wilson is likely NFL bound. That said, rather than have to go through a rebuilding period with the team, it could benefit him more to head elsewhere and start with a clean slate.

It should also be noted that Mullen has ties to the Sunshine State, having served Urban Meyer’s offensive coordinator at Florida before being hired at Mississippi State.
