Earlier this week a Florida fan made a "We Want Dan" website as a campaign for Gators AD Jeremy Foley to hire Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen as a replacement for current head coach Will Muschamp.

On Thursday, coach Mullen was asked to comment on the website and what he thinks about it. Here is what he had to say per ESPN:
quote:

"It's really an insult to coaches and to players at institutions. Whether they're putting websites out to hire you or fire you or do all these different things, I don't think that does any good for anybody," he said.

"At the end of every season, there are coaching changes, but people put so much in. You're so committed, yourself, your family, your team, everybody's so committed, that I think it's insulting to the job everybody does.

"I know there are fans that like that stuff. I don't think that stuff is great. People can have their opinions and call in on shows, but to take it that far, I don't think it's good for anybody on either side of the fence."
Mullen was an assistant at Florida from 2005-2008 and could be a popular name for coaching vacancies come this off-season.
