Dan Mullen To Interview For Penn State Football Coaching Vacancy Monday

Mississippi State Bulldogs head coach Dan Mullen will interview for the Penn State Nittany Lions head coaching position after all, according to Blue White Illustrated.

Mullen's name has been coming up for a while now and makes more sense than one might initially think given his SEC job. Mullen, age 39, coached in the Northeast and Midwest before following Urban Meyer from Bowling Green to Utah and then to Florida. He's also a Pennsylvania native whose wife is from Pittsburgh and whose father graduated from Penn State.

Mullen previously denied reports he was interested in the job, even going so far as to claim it was a rumor started by a rival. I suppose that by actually interviewing for the position, he'll be showing them who's boss?

In three seasons, Mullen is 20-17 as the head coach of Mississippi State.
