Mullen joined The Midday 180 on FM 104.5 The Zone in Nashville, Tenn., on Tuesday. During the interview, the Bulldogs coach said he’d be “interested” in coaching in the NFL at some point.

There are six NFL head coaching vacancies this offseason, but Mullen’s comment seems to indicate that he’s thinking about later down the line.
Mullen’s name has been linked to other coaching opportunities before.Reports in December connected Mullen with the opening at Oregon. He was reportedly one of the finalists for the job, along with Willie Taggart, who eventually won the job.
He has since reportedly been negotiating with Mississippi State on a contract extension.
Mississippi State hired Mullen as head coach in 2009. He’s 61-42 in Starkville, including three seasons with nine wins or more.
