Former Mississippi State and Florida head coach Dan Mullen is not in the running to become the next offensive coordinator for Alabama, according to ESPN senior writer Chris Low.

"In talking to several close to the situation, Dan Mullen is not a candidate for @AlabamaFTBL’s OC job. Mullen has enjoyed the time away from coaching to be with his family and also wants to concentrate on his TV career as a football analyst," tweeted Low.

The entirety of Mullen's coaching career has been on the offensive side of the ball working as a wide receivers coach for Wagner (1994-95) and Columbia (1996-97), a quarterbacks coach for Bowling Green (2001-02) and Utah (2003-04), as well as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for Florida (2005-08), and was the head coach for Mississippi State (2009-17) and Florida (2018-21).

The Penn., native has high accolades to his name, winning the 2014 SEC Coach of the Year, George Munger Award, and has a 103-61 coaching record, a 7-3 bowl record, and has ten winning seasons under his belt.

The Crimson Tide is currently searching for its next offensive coordinator after Bill O'Brien announced earlier in the week that he is headed back to the NFL to become the next OC for the New England Patriots.

The next man up will be the ninth offensive coordinator of Saban's tenure.
