Dan Mullen has hired Geoff Collins from Florida International as his linebackers coach and co-defensive coordinator. Chris Wilson was promoted to D-coordinator to replace Manny Diaz who split for Texas. So Collins is actually replacing Diaz (as linebackers coach) and Wilson (as co-coordinator).
Collins’ FIU defense led the Sun Belt conference in total defense, scoring defense, pass efficiency defense and turnover margin.
“Geoff has shown the type of immediate impact he can bring to a defense by what he did at Florida International last season,” Dan Mullen said in a press release. “He’s a smart young coach that has great experience, and he’ll bring the same kind of aggressive attitude and philosophy that we expect from our defense at Mississippi State.”
