Earlier today, Mississippi State head coach Dan Mullen spoke about the departure of former defensive coordinator Geoff Collins who is headed to Florida
for the same job. Per USAToday.com:
“I hope our guys have opportunities to go be head coaches more than leaving for lateral positions,” Mullen said. “I think (with) success, I hope we do have opportunities.”
Mullen has not named a defensive coordinator for the Orange Bowl against Georgia Tech, but did say that grad assistant John Haneline will work with the linebackers in Collin's absence.
