Mullen adds Torbush, Wilson to staff


Dan Mullen keeps adding to his staff …

The Associated Press
STARKVILLE – New coach Dan Mullen has hired two more assistant coaches for his staff at Mississippi State.

Carl Torbush, former head coach at North Carolina and Louisiana Tech, and former Ole Miss and Southern Miss assistant coach Frank Wilson are the new hires.

Torbush returns to major college football after three seasons as assistant head coach at his alma mater, Carson-Newman. Before that he spent five seasons as defensive coordinator for Dennis Franchione at Alabama and Texas A&M. He also was a defensive coordinator at Ole Miss in the mid-1980s.

Wilson joins the staff after a year as running backs coach and recruiting coordinator for Larry Fedora at Southern Miss. Before that, he spent three years on Ed Orgeron’s staff at Ole Miss.

    Well, these are bad hires. ColoradoReb has said so. His sources have stated that the reason that UM let them go is because they couldn’t coach. Man, skunked again!

    Wilson did most of the recruiting that orgeron got so much credit for

    is torbush the DC or is he going to be working with the linebackers??…even though he has a nice history, he is coming from a NAIA school and that worries me if he is meant to be the DC…i hear wilson is a heckuva recruiter and we can use all we can get…

    What are yall talking about. These are great hires. I am a Carson Newman Alumni and have seen Torbush’s defense. Alot of teams have been trying to get Torbush away from Carson Newman but he wouldn’t (Tennessee, NC State, Wake Forest, Clemson all tried). The only reason Torbush left is because he was impressed by Mullen and thinks he can win.

    And Wilson is a great recruiter and running backs coach- BenJarvous (UM) and Flecther (USM). And supposedly the Saints/Orgeron were wanting him to coach up Bush.

    The important thing is that Mullen is surrounding State with coaches who are winners.

    It is my understanding Mullen and the ones he’s hired had worked together before.

    They maybe in a different division than MSU, but Carson-Newman has an impressive football winning record. And Torbush did a great job at NC.

    Do not know much about Wilson other than that he is a great recruiter (LA area) -one of the reasom USM hired him.
