Is Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen a candidate to move to the NFL? Sports Illustrated’s Peter King wrote that Mullen could be a viable option for the Los Angeles Rams in their coaching search.
The Rams fired coach Jeff Fisher on Monday, and King said Mullen, 44, could get consideration.
“(He) is popular in the eyes of some in the NFL for his development of Dak Prescott and is well-liked by NFL people who pass through Starkville,” King wrote.
King also mentions Wisconsin coach Paul Chryst and Colorado’s Mike MacIntyre as possible replacements from the college level. Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh has said that he is not interested in returning to the NFL at this time.
Mullen has been Mississippi State’s coach since 2009. Before that, he was Florida’s offensive coordinator for four seasons under Urban Meyer.
