Mississippi State’s Dan Mullen finalizing deal with Florida

Florida is finalizing a deal to make Dan Mullen its next head coach, a source told ESPN’s Chris Low.

Mullen has been the coach at Mississippi State since 2009. His 69-46 record for the Bulldogs makes him the second-winningest coach in school history, behind only Jackie Sherrill. The Bulldogs are 8-4 (4-4 SEC) this season.

Mississippi State is set to play in its eighth straight bowl game, a streak that began in Mullen’s second season at the school.
