This is another big get for Mississippi State.
The Bulldogs have already announced the hiring of Penn State offensive coordinator Joe Moorhead as their next head coach, and now Mississippi State is reportedly adding another one of Moorhead’s cohorts to their staff in the form of Fordham head coach Andrew Breiner.
Breiner served under Moorhead at Fordahm when Moorhead was the head coach there. Breiner took over the head coaching spot after Moorhead was hired away by James Franklin at Penn State.
Breiner was 12-10 in his two years as the Fordham head coach. Fordham plays in the FCS Patriot League.
Mississippi State is assembling a new staff after former head coach Dan Mullen was hired away by Florida. Mullen was Florida’s offensive coordinator in the Tebow years before taking over at Mississippi State in 2009. Mullen led Mississippi State to perhaps their most success in history with a 69-46 (.600) overall record and bowl eligibility in eight consecutive years.
