Mississippi State’s Dan Mullen was being named as a potential candidate for the Florida job and now he’s been considered as a possible guy for the Vols’ gig.
CBS Sports says he would be a “home-run” hire.
His 68-45 record overall and 32-38 mark in conference play doesn’t exactly jump off the page, but that was compiled at Mississippi State — a traditional SEC cellar dweller prior to his arrival. He develops quarterbacks consistently and a fantastic identifier of talent. Imagine what he could do with the facilities and recruiting base that Tennessee has to offer.
He’d kill it.
