Yes! And he is definitely a motivational coach as well!  HDN was not a good coach, but he could definitely motivate his players.

This is a funny point. Look at his first five years at Misstake. Not much better than CBB's. Especially considering that pitiful school does everything they can to avoid scheduling P5 OOC games.

Never understood why he's lasted so long at MSU?  Is there something underlying with him that makes him unattractive to bigger programs?  As I recall, he and the FL AD didn't get along when he was OC.

He's a great coach, but all it takes is one hard hit on that qb say maybe to the knees and you're looking at sucking.

His guys do look fast and the offense is fun to watch. Not saying I want him at the UA but everyone there sure looks like they are having a better time than we are right now.

I like Mullen and think he is a really good coach.  Compare his first 5-6 years to CBBs.  Very similar in record, maybe not style.

Not sure that I would call this record bad or even average! 9-4-----10-3----9-4
plus an overall record of 63-42. I think most of us would take that and run with it right now!
I have to believe that he could recruit better here than Starkville.

Based on the way they've played so far this year, Mississippi State may just be the 2nd best team in the SEC this year. They sure look good against LSU right now. I think they play Georgia next week. That will be a good test.

His teams have pulled defeat from the jaws of victory time after time.  The offensive play calling, in general, over the years usually makes mistakes that cost them games time after time.  He may be the second best HC in the SEC right now.  That doesn't speak of how good he is, just how bad the SEC coaches are.  Collectively, SEC HCs are stinking up the league.  Ole BB may be #1 in that group.

Well he has a huge QB - a rich man's Matt Jones - that is making him look smart. Fitzgerald is a stud. YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT - we have a back QB that could be the real deal too. AND YOU KNOW WHAT - he won't play a meaningful snap all year, in part, because it builds in another excuse NEXT YEAR for Long and Brett to plead their case for needing more time. If you don't think that's crossed these mediocre Mary's minds you've never been in corporate America before.

This was the same dig at Him when he had Prescott too.  It's a ludicrous assertion.  He recruited those QB's.  Signed those QB's.  And coached and developed those QB's.  Mullen is legit.

And probably the last thing our OL needs right now is the pressure of protecting a 6-7, 270 QB.
