FOX Sports analyst Clay Travis believes Dan Mullen will be Tennessee’s next head coach.
Travis predicts Tennessee will be among six “big” coaching jobs open this offseason and Mullen will fill its vacancy as Travis discusses as part of his Outkick the Coverage blog on Sunday.
The pundit also predicted that Florida, UCLA, Nebraska, Arkansas and Texas A&M would be in the market for new coaches this offseason.
Mullen is also considered one of the favorites to be the Gators’ next head coach, having previously worked with the team as an offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach from 2005-08, which included winning two national championships and coaching Tim Tebow during his Heisman Trophy season.
He currently holds a 67-44 (32-37 SEC) head coaching record and has led the Bulldogs to seven consecutive winning seasons.
In 2010, Mississippi State earned its first No. 1 overall ranking in program history and finished with a 10-3 (6-2 SEC) overall record, earning Mullen several coaching honors including the AP and Athlon SEC Coach of the Year awards and the Maxwell Football Club Coach of the Year award.
