After six years as Mississippi State’s athletic director, Scott Stricklin is taking over the same duties at Florida.
The news was officially announced on Tuesday, which came as no surprise to Dan Mullen.
The Bulldogs head coach spoke on Stricklin later in the day, and took a subtle dig at Florida in the process, according to HailState.com’s Bob Carskadon.
Mullen on Stricklin: "We've won more games than Florida has the last six years … No wonder they want him and people are coming after him."

Mississippi State played to a 50-28 record from 2010-15, compared to Florida’s 47-30 mark.
The Bulldogs were helped out by the Dak Prescott era, while Florida endured less than stellar marks under the tutelage of then-head coach Will Muschamp.
Stricklin will take over for longtime athletic director Jeremy Foley, and signed a six-year deal worth $1.076 million annually.
