Dan Mullen is currently the hottest candidate for every major head coaching job in college football and for good reason.
In just his second season in Starkville, Mullen led the Mississippi State Bulldogs to an 8-4 record in one of the most competitive SEC West races in conference history.
Additionally, with the Gators' recent struggles on offense, many believe that Mullen was the true genius behind Urban Meyer's spread offense.
If athletic director Jeremy Foley were to call, Mullen would probably be willing to listen, especially considering the rich recruiting base in the state of Florida.
Considering the candidates, Mullen would be the best option for the Gators, but with perks and prestige of the job, Florida will definitely have plenty of candidates to choose from.
