Coaching search updates

ESPN reports that Florida offensive coordinator Dan Mullen has interviewed for the Mississippi State job. Anyone have a clue what the Bulldogs will do? I’m not sure they do.

Auburn fans continue to hold out hope for Will Muschamp to return from Texas. I just don’t think that will happen. Would you scorn Texas for the opportunity at Auburn? Auburn is a good job, but Texas is a better job—I’d say Texas is the best job in the country (followed by Florida, USC, Oklahoma, Alabama, etc.)

I’d rate likelihood of Auburn hiring Muschamp below the chances of hiring Paul Johnson. Johnson seems like an ideal fit—someone who does more with less and has already thrashed a major Auburn rival by beating Georgia this year. That win shows Johnson can win big games against SEC opponents. Are there any other candidates with that qualification on Auburn’s radar?

The Sporting News reports Turner Gill remains a candidate for the Auburn job. Gill will make a good coach at a major program. However, will end end up in the SEC?
