Florida Issues a Public Statement Regarding Dan Mullen
Dan Mullen, the head football coach of the University of Florida, has been fired.
After the team’s collapse against Missouri on Saturday night, Mullen’s time at the school was over.
In overtime, the Gators scored the first touchdown, but the Tigers quickly responded and won on a two-point conversion.
The school issued a statement on its official website announcing the dismissal and naming the interim coach.
“Athletics Director Scott Stricklin announced on Sunday that the University of Florida has parted ways with football Head Coach Dan Mullen.
For the FSU game, Special Teams Coordinator/Running Backs Coach Greg Knox will serve as interim coach.”
Mullen finished his four years as the coach of the Florida Gators with a 34-15 record.
During his time with the Gators, he won 21 SEC games and led them to three New Year’s Six bowl appearances.
This season was shaping up to be another good one, especially after Florida’s game against Alabama was so close.
It only lost two games in the first six, and won four of them.
Following that, the Gators went on to lose four of their next five games, including four in a row to Power 5 opponents.
At 3 p.m., Stricklin is expected to hold a press conference.
ET will explain why he was fired.
