Report: MSU’s Hudspeth Takes The ULL Job

Mississippi State receiver and passing game coordinator Mark Hudspeth has reportedly accepted the head coaching job at Louisiana-Lafayette.

In late November, Hudspeth said he was not interested in the job.  Hudspeth said in the last 24 hours that he changed his mind when contacted by ULL officials.  Now, if FootballScoop.com is correct, he’s completed his flip-flop and accepted the ULL job.

Hudspeth had been the head coach at North Alabama from 2002 to 2008 before joining Dan Mullen’s first staff in Starkville.

I say congratulations to Hudspeth. ULL is a program with great potential. They have had basketball teams make it to the elite 8, baseball teams make it to the final 3 in the CWS, and softball teams make it to the semifinals of the WCWS,

There have been many great athletes come out of this school including Andrew Tony, Bo Lamar, Marvin Winkler, Ron Guidry, Jake Delhomme, Brandon Stokley, and Brian Mitchell. A fine coach like Hudspeth should be able to recruit many athletes at the second tier to go to ULL and produce a winner. In a few years a major college will be looking at him for a job in the SEC or PAC 10. Until then ULL will be able enjoy success in football for the first time in many years.

When Urban Meyer got the Head coaching job at Bowling Green he was never even a Head Coordinator he had been a recievers coach.Good for Hudspeth!

This guy was the passing coordinator and receivers coach at Mississippi State???? Heck did they even have a passing game and who the heck were their receivers??? Obviously he's not wanted for what he done at state since HE DIDN"T DO ANYTHING!!! To say ULL is a good opportunity is definitely up in the air but at best, it's simply a job.

What? An assistant taking a head coaching job says more about their success, the impression they make, and the success of Mississippi State than it does about Mullen leaving. When Mullen left Florida 2 years back it was not because he thought Meyer was leaving and he, Mullen, would be out of a job if he didn't make his move to Mississippi State.

Assistants move on all the time. Maybe Mullen will leave, maybe he won't, but this job move has nothing to do with it.

Or he sees UL as an excellent opppurtunity period - regardless of Coach Mullen's plans.

This tells me something is happening with Mullen. He knows that there is a good chance that Mullen is going to either UF or UM, and was not promised a position on the new staff. So since he was having to move no matter what, then might as well get a promotion and raise out of it, instead of being unemployed in a few weeks.

ULL is getting a great coach. If State is able to keep Mullen for another year or two, I can see Hudspeth coming back as a Chizick type hire. He grew up a Bulldog fan.
