From SDS: One of Dan Mullen’s assistant coaches is reportedly a candidate to take over at Mississippi State and from Swamp247: Grantham's son committed to play baseball at Mississippi State in August. He's a 2020 prospect finishing up his senior year at Buchholz High School in Gainesville. At the very least, Mississippi State's opening will bear monitoring until the position is filled. Grantham hasn't been a head coach, but it's clear he's in line for a move up eventually if he finds the right job. 136COMMENTS Opportunities don't keep presenting themselves otherwise. And Mullen would be supportive of the right kind of move. "For our guys, they get the opportunity to go be a head coach, one, I encourage them," Mullen said. "We do everything we can to help put them in that situation to become a head coach. And then I certainly hope if it’s an advancement for somebody on our staff that they take people with them and it would advance their careers."
