No. 2) Florida hires Mississippi State head coach Dan Mullen
Florida couldn’t get Chip Kelly – UCLA was a better fit.
They also couldn’t get Scott Frost – Nebraska is home for him.
Instead, the Gators “settled” with Dan Mullen, who just so happens to check every box for a program that hasn’t fielded a functioning offense since 2009.
As we saw in Starkville, Mullen developed two prolific quarterbacks (Dak Prescott and Nick Fitzgerald) while also getting Mississippi State to No. 1. Throw in her previous ties to Florida as the Gator’s offensive coordinator during their dominant mid-2000s run, and this is the perfect marriage.
