Dan Mullen knows a thing or two about Tim Tebow.
Mullen was the offensive coordinator at Florida from 2005-08, with his last three years in Florida intersecting with Tebow’s time there. Now the head coach Mississippi State, Mullen sees a little bit of Tebow in BYU quarterback Taysom Hill. Mullen’s team takes on Hill and the Cougars on Friday night in Provo, Utah.
Mullen compares BYU QB Taysom Hill to Tim Tebow. Says he’s a physical runner. Says he shows up on third and 4.
