    Maybe they just need to put a bigger number on the left side of their offer.

    Hope you're wrong, but if so I am sure Mullen has a back up plan.

    I know MSU wants a proven head coach, but there's not too many coaches I can think of that would want to go to MSU, who happens to play in the toughest division, who will year in year out get out recruited, and who will be lucky to win 6 games a year. Furthermore, I believe they will be losing to ole miss quite often and that won't sit well with fans. MSU hit pay dirt when they hired DM, but there are not too many DM's around. IMO MSU will be fighting Arky for who will be bottom feeders in that division. It would not surprise me that MSU ends up with an assistant coach.

    Don't see Grantham taking the job, especially after turning down the Browns last year. If he does though, Strong and Mattison would be at the top of my list for new DC.

    I don’t agree with this. Coaches want an SEC job. All of the SEC schools recruit well in relation to the rest of the country and they know that even getting fired in the SEC lands you, at worst, a cushy studio job and more likely a lower-stress, mid-major position. Coaching an SEC West school is a great first coaching job for a coordinator.

    I just do not think TG is head coach material. He would need a very special OC imo

    Clarion Ledger wrote that Hudspeth and Bill Clark are candidates. Both have good HC records and are experienced, although not in Power 5

    True, he has limited time left but he's still a great DC. I doubt he'd leave because of his age. he probably wants to not have to rebuild a system before retiring

    at the moment we still have a DC that's one of the top in the country. I'd be okay with Strong coming back in some capacity

    I would not want a DC for a head coach. But I know some do.

    Mississippi State is a SEC head coaching job... even though it's a middle tier coaching job... he'll still get a chance to lead his own program... I think he'll take it

    Keeping Grantham to maintain continuity and keep recruits happy would be my main concern

    But if he does leave, can't fault the guy for taking a promotion. I think where we are right now as a program, we will attract some good candidates and we will end up upgrading

    Chizik ended his Auburn career 33-19 with season records of: 8-5, 14-0, 8-5 and 3-9. His 2012 season was a train wreck of early departures and injuries. He begged to stay one more season as his final 2 recruiting classes ranked #5 and #6. His roster was loaded with very young talent including 5* Michael Dyer, 4* Tre Mason and 4* Sammie Coats. It was his players as juniors and seniors that enabled Gus to have his only major success in 2014.

    Chizik also was DC at North Carolina for 2 years (2015-2016). The defenses went from 121 to 100 to 63 (which does not sound like much but coming out of NCAA sanctions that was impressive work).

    If Chizik hired the right OC like he did at Auburn when he hired Gus Malzahn and hire a few assistants who know Miss football, he would be an excellent hire for Miss State in my opinion.
