Friends, this is the sound a business decision makes.
“There were so many rumors every year,” Fitzgerald says of Mullen. “He told our team, ‘I’m not going anywhere.’” The Sunday after the loss to Ole Miss, Mullen met briefly with players. “He came in and said, ‘I’m leaving,’ and he walked out of the room.”
Florida plays Mississippi State this season, and all I can say is it sure is a good thing Mullen is a head coach and not a player. Gawd only knows what kind of state secrets he might have carried with him to Gainesville if he’d have been, say, a backup offensive lineman. Instead, we can all sleep easier knowing the Republic is safe.
