Florida expected to hire Dan Mullen

Yahoo Sports & ESPN have reported that Florida is targeting Mullen to be their new head coach.

According to Thamel, a decision is expected to be made by "the end of the day" on Sunday. Mullen led the Bulldogs to an 8-4 record this year, and in spite of their loss to the University of MS on Thursday, they will be playing in a bowl game for the eighth straight season. He also worked under Florida athletic director Scott Stricklin at Mississippi State, when Stricklin was AD in Starksville from 2010-2016.

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.

"As I said, I'm very, very happy here", Mullen said after Mississippi State's Egg Bowl loss to Ole Miss. Along with coaching quarterback Tim Tebow at Florida, Mullen also coached Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith at Utah and Dallas Cowboys star Dak Prescott at Mississippi State.

Stricklin and Mullen have a solid working relationship, as their time together in Starkville included a boom in high-end facilities and Mississippi State reaching No. 1 for the first time in program history 2014.

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 Bulldogs are 8-4 overall and 4-4 in the SEC this season.
