Mullen Won’t Talk Penn State

So how did Dan Mullen wind up as supposedly Penn State’s top choice to replace Joe Paterno when he’s got a 6-6 record this year and he’s never beaten an SEC West school that doesn’t have the world “Ole” in its name?

His father is a Penn State alum.  Actually, PSU officials probably like the Urban Meyer/SEC pedigree as well as the excitement he’s created in Starkville.  (The part about his father can’t hurt, though.)

Asked about numerous reports linking him to the Nittany Lions’ job, Mullen talked up Mississippi State, downplayed the job, and made the following tongue-in-cheek comment:

“Great.  I’m sure I’m on everybody’s (list).  Am I right?  Every time a job comes open, doesn’t my name come up?  So, you know our policy.  We talk Mississippi State football.  That’s all we ever talk about.”

The coach also said that he is happy in Starkville.  Asked what he will tell his players about the rumors, Mullen said:

“I tell them the same thing.  I’m happy here.  Let’s worry about being here.”
