He’s only going because they said he was anyway.

I thought Dan Mullen was better with misdirection than this:

The Penn State-following Rivals.com affiliate is reporting that Mississippi State head coach Dan Mullen will interview for the right to follow Joe Paterno on Monday. He denied reports from earlier this week saying that he was close to a deal with PSU, claiming that rivals were planting them in the press to hurt his recruiting.

If he is interviewing at PSU, he better hope he gets offered the job, because otherwise if he thinks recruiting is rough now, wait ’til he sees what other coaches do with this for material.

    This is such a bad move for him. Hope the contract is huge, because Penn State is now officially a dumpster fire. You don’t want to be the man who follows a legend. You CERTAINLY don’t want to be the man who follows the legend who was brought down by his tangential relationship to a child molestation scandal which will be investigated on your campus for the next several years.

      Man, the comments section really touched me. So great to see such support from fans of all teams, including those of our rivals.

    I honestly can’t imagine why anyone but the most ambitious coach would touch the Penn State job. It’s so radioactive now you could see the campus from Mars.


  4. Always Someone Else's Fault

    It’s an excuse to give him a raise and extension. ADs want to do this because it locks in the base salary they can work with when jobs come open without nearly as much PR hit as giving a .500 coach a raise and extension just because.

    It’s serious leverage with the boosters, especially with Ole Miss in turmoil. Strike while the iron is hot and all that. More money, please.
