Dan Mullen reveals he won't be next head coach at ACC program
Dan Mullen won’t be coaching in orange and blue again next fall. The former SEC head coach shared on social media late Sunday that he won’t be the next head coach at Syracuse. Mullen reportedly met with Syracuse athletic director John Wildhack last week.
Mullen chose to share the news on X, formerly Twitter. A Syracuse gif was posted in reply to a Mullen post defending Ryan Day. Mullen replied to the Syracuse post by saying he will not be the next head coach of the Orange.
Love the cuse. But will not be the next head coach.

Mullen, 51, has a 103-61 record as a head coach. He has spent the last 2 seasons as an ESPN analyst after being dismissed from Florida in 2021.
During his 3rd season, Mullen reached a 29-6 record as UF’s head coach. The rough finish to the 2020 season and disappointing showing in 2021 brought his final Florida record to 34-15 overall and 21-14 in SEC play. The Gators made New Year’s Six bowls in each of Mullen’s first 3 seasons, going 2-1.
Mullen got his start as a head coach at Mississippi State. After a 5-7 season in 2009, he took the Bulldogs to a bowl game in each of the next 8 seasons. MSU was 69-46 overall in Mullen’s tenure, with a 33-39 mark in SEC games, including a 10-win season and trip to the Orange Bowl in 2014.
