Prior to his time in Starkville, Mississippi, Mullen was the offensive coordinator at Florida under Urban Meyer where he won national championships in 2006 and 2008.

Three days after Mississippi State's regular season came to an end with a loss to Ole Miss in the Egg Bowl, Dan Mullen was officially announced as the new head coach at Florida.

The Dan Mullen era has ended at Mississippi State.

Mullen's return to Gainesville reunites him with former Mississippi State athletic director Scott Stricklin, who has been in charge of Florida's athletic department for the past 13 months.
