According to Jeremy Fowler of CBS Sports, the Mississippi State Bulldogs and head coach Dan Mullen have agreed in principle to a contract extension that will carry their head man through the 2017-18 college football season.
While Mullen will be sticking around for a while, the deal basically equates to just adding a year to his deal.
Mullen’s contract can’t run longer than four years because of Mississippi State University regulations, so the Bulldogs are essentially adding a year to Mullen’s deal. The deal is not yet finalized.
While they haven’t come close to capturing an SEC Championship, Mullen has done wonderfully with this program since he came over from the Florida Gators where he was an assistant under Urban Meyer.
This past season marked the fourth consecutive season that the Bulldogs found themselves in a bowl game, which ended up in a Liberty Bowl win over the Rice Owls.
In 2014, Mullen has himself a Heisman sleeper returning in Dak Prescott, so the heat is now certainly on the Mississippi State head man.
