Frank Wilson Says …


Just got off the phone with Frank Wilson, one of four assistants new football coach Dan Mullen has hired. More to come on that front, but Wilson thinks that he, Mark Hudspeth, Les Koenning and Carl Torbush, along with the holdovers from Sylvester Croom‘s staff, are coming together quickly as a unit.

“I think we have great chemistry,” Wilson said. “I think we have guys with experience and expertise in various areas. I think we’ll all be able to learn from one another.”

With Mullen splitting his time between Starkville and Gainesville, it’s fallen on the assistants to handle a lot of the recruiting duties. Wilson, having coached previously at Southern Miss and Ole Miss, already has good in-state ties with high school and junior college coaches. Mullen has had a hand in things, of course. Wilson said he and his fellow assistants have been speaking with Mullen each morning and night, and that Mullen left things well-organized.

“Honestly, it’s been as good as it could be considering the transition with coach finishing up his deal,” said Wilson. “It’s given us an opporunity to bond as assistant coaches and get our plan together.”

Wilson added, “Signing day not being until February, it’s just starting, a long way from now. We’ve gotta finish it.”

    I can’t say that I have heard one bad thing bout Mullen, nothing to hurt his character, and I’m glad he’s on top of things (the Office 🙂 )

    Except for calling Pat Patterson’s girlfriend a hooker and drug dealer. Also got thrown out of his house. If you don’t believe me, ask any OM fan. They were there and sat next to Pat’s dad at the Cotton Bowl.

    I heard Wilson had a son playing at USM. Anybody know anything about him or if there are special rules for transfer of a coaches son.

    “according to several OM people.”

    Is that also, how many of them it would take to screw in a light bulb?

    wilson’s first cousin, deron, a 3* DB, was committed to southern miss…now there are talks about he might be getting looked at by state and vice versa…realsitically, if we can start getting all 3-5* players and actually have someone coaching them up, well i think there will be nothing but good things in the future…
