Dan Mullen Targeted By Gators

Report: Florida targeting Dan Mullen to fill head coaching vacancy

Dan Mullen has emerged as the Florida Gators' top target to become the school's next head football coach, a source told the Orlando Sentinel.

Mullen was offensive coordinator at Florida from 2005-2008, under Urban Meyer with Tim Tebow as the primary quarterback.

Florida made a huge move here and Mullen, 45, knows what it takes to win in the SEC and he's going to have more resources to succeed in Gainesville. Stricklin was Mississippi State's athletic director for seven of those years.

Florida football was looking for a change of direction after Will Muschamp and the former Colorado State coach seemed to be the answer.

The news comes after the Gators whiffed on Chip Kelly, who opted to return to the Pac-12 with the UCLA Bruins.

Mullen went 69-46 during his time in Starkville and led the Bulldogs to eight consecutive bowl games.

Mullen is most known for developing quarterbacks.

The Tennessee Volunteers officially fired Butch Jones earlier this season and have begun their coaching search over the past two weeks.

Mullen also would have to overcome a perception problem with UF fans.

Frost 's comfort level in Orlando and the recent opening at alma mater Nebraska worked against the Gators.

In 9 years at Mississippi State, the Bulldogs have reached new heights: 8 straight bowl appearances, reaching #1 in the polls in 2014, playing in the Orange Bowl, recruiting and developing National Football League talent like Dak Prescott, Fletcher Cox, and Chris Jones.

While Mullen coached his final game for Mississippi State, Stricklin, a 1992 graduate of the school, was visiting his family in Jackson - two hours southwest of Starkville.
