Dan Mullen returned to Florida with high expectations. Gator fans want their program back at the level it was at when Mullen was the OC under Urban Meyer.

During Mullen's four-year stint as a UF assistant, the Gators won a pair of SEC titles and a pair of national titles. It was quite a run in Gainesville.

Fortunately for Florida fans, at least one SEC Network analyst thinks Mullen is capable of restoring the program to glory.

Cole Cubelic predicted today that Mullen will win an SEC and a national championship at Florida.

Mullen did lead Mississippi State to the No. 1 ranking during the 2014 season. He also helped the Bulldogs reach two Gator Bowls and one Orange Bowl.

Mullen has a strong track record as an offensive coach, and that's what Florida badly needs. Even when the Gators won back-to-back SEC East titles in 2015 and 2016, their offense struggled.

It is unlikely that Mullen fulfills Cubelic's prediction in the year or two, but beyond that it will be interesting to watch. Georgia looks like they are ready to command the SEC East for years to come, while Tennessee is an unknown with a new head coach.

Don't forget about the West, which has Alabama, Auburn, LSU and others. If Mullen proves Cubelic right, he will definitely have earned his championships.
