Mullen says he has no plans to leave Mississippi State
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen says he hasn't been contacted by anyone about another coaching job and has "no plans on going anywhere."
Mullen acknowledges all the speculation about replacing Urban Meyer at Florida or Randy Shannon at Miami is flattering, but adds that it's also annoying "because I have to answer things thatdon't pertain to our football team." He says all he has time to worry about is his football team.
Mullen was in Jacksonville on Thursday for a Gator Bowl reception that welcomed coaches before the New Year's Day game. Mullen was joined by Michigan's Rich Rodriguez.
Mullen, who spent four years working for Meyer at Florida, says he has not spoken to his former boss. Mullen sent Meyer a text message wishing him well.
