Mississippi State Football: Dan Mullen Nearly Storms out of Press Conference

Fall practice just started around the south, and we've already had a coach blow up on the media.

Speaking with reporters on the first day of fall camp, Mississippi State head coach Dan Mullen refused to discuss injuries citing university policy, according to Brandon Marcello of the Jackson (Miss.) Clarion-Ledger.

Mullen was asked about the status of guard Tobias Smith (knee) and safety Nickoe Whitley (Achilles), both of whom had offseason surgery. 

Apparently, that rubbed him the wrong way.

Mullen abruptly got up from his chair (1:25 mark), thanked the media for coming and said that he was too busy to deal with this considering that everyone in the room "knows the policy," even though he has commented on injuries in the past—even as recently as at SEC Media Days.

Coaching is a stressful business, but if you're going to institute (or adhere to) specific policies that haven't been paid as much attention to in the past, it's only fair to make that known beforehand before storming off.

The football season doesn't kick off for another month, but things are already heated in Starkville.
