Dan Mullen Press Conference


New MSU football coach Dan Mullen will have a four-year contract worth $1.2 million per year. He still hasn’t decided what to do about helping Florida prepare for the BCS title game, calling that situation “fluid,” but he’s signed a “letter of understanding” with State.

Athletics Director Greg Byrne said he had eight face-to-face interviews with candidates, but that Mullen “was absolutely the first person we offered the job to.” Byrne and Mullen first spoke Monday night, though Mullen knew by then of Byrne’s interest. They met in an Atlanta hotel at 9 p.m. Tuesday and finally stopped talking about 3:30 a.m. After a couple hours’ sleep, Mullen woke up and accepted the job.

About a half-hour into the interview, Byrne said he had this thought: “This is our guy.”

Quotes to come later.
