Dan Mullen finalizing deal to become Florida's next coach, report says

Dan Mullen finalizing deal to become Florida's next coach, report says

According to Thamel, a decision is expected to be made by "the end of the day" on Sunday.

According to multiple outlets, Mississippi State head coach Dan Mullen may return to Gainesville.

Mississippi State fans are sure to be disappointed with the development, but this could be quite the rivalry in the SEC for years to come.

Mullen won two national championships at Florida as offensive coordinator under Urban Meyer.

When the Florida job opened in 2015, former Gator athletic director Jeremy Foley immediately dismissed Mullen as a candidate.

Mullen is now the second-longest tenured head coach in the Southeastern Conference and has produced more bowl game victories (five) and bowl appearances (seven straight) than any coach in school history.

The Gators went 4-7 this season for just their second losing season since 1979.

The loss to Ole Miss in the Egg Bowl on Thanksgiving does not affect Mullen's profile. "I have shared my vision with Athletics Director John Cohen and I am confident that John will move quickly and decisively to fill our coaching vacancy with the best possible person to build on the success of our program".

Mullen departs Mississippi State No. 2 on its all-time wins list, six victories shy of Jackie Sherrill's mark. The 45-year-old Mullen is already getting paid $4.5 million, but word is the school is willing to bump him up to around $6 million and also making an even stronger financial commitment to his staff.
