    I agree dudes got it made. Plenty of money, lot of time with family and coaching players at a level still pretty much unspoiled from all the nonsense.

    I feel as though Mullen almost tried to get fired at UF once NIL started happening. He definitely wants no parts of that and I don?t see him entering the college game again with the way things are going. If anything he would be a NFL assistant

    Can't argue with that.

    Frankly, I don't think it's embarrassing at all. He's got it made.

    Yeah....I doubt he'll be doing this gig for very long. His career fate was sealed when Loafers called him up. He never imagined that would be the case.

    Fired by Florida (or any employer for that matter) is embarrassing. Working an honest job anywhere (high school OC for example) is not embarrassing at all.

    Leach did something pretty similar I think he coached or was going to coach in key west while doing a media gig while he bided his time.

    He is going to hate recruiting even more now but I imagine a job offer he likes will come open at some point.

    Looks like Dan isn't gonna be the OC but will serve as some type of consultant developing QB's in the area. It's me but I wish him well and regardless thankful for "most" of his 9 years at Msu. Times have changed over the years with coaching salaries and the media coverage now days, it's brutal!

    Yeah. We all know he hated recruiting. I think he may just want to coach football. He should be set for life unless he just can't manage his money. I could see where burnout would drive some coaches away from the profession. Same thing happened with Matt Luke.

    Good post. Making me rethink my earlier post as being premature and a bit harsh. Maybe they just picked the area they wanna raise their kids & retire in and he can still do what he loves doing without all the P5 BS.

    I think for most of us, getting a fired with a multimillion dollar buyout is not embarrassing, throw me in that briar pit!

    It would be to me. Getting fired from a job because I didn't perform to expectations would certainly be embarrassing to me. I have a high standard for myself. The money is not the issue. The issue is I performed so poorly that they want me gone. And in Mullen's case, they were willing to pay him to go away.

    No shit. I assume college is dead to him now with NIL. Even if he were willing to be an OC, I'm not sure he could coach without running people off with his style. But nothing wrong with hanging out until his son is done playing golf (or until the youngest child is out of high school; can't remember what their kid situtaion is) and then trying an assistant gig in the NFL. Or trying to do a little bit of commentary. If his heart were really in football right now, heh wouldn't have failed like he did at UF. He wouldn't have tried to coast at MSU. He clearly doesn't have it in him to live and breath football the way some of the best coaches do.
