MSU's Mullen denies contact with Penn State

STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) - Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen insists he hasn't been approached by Penn State about its coaching vacancy.

Mullen released a statement through the university, saying: "Neither I, my agent nor the administration at Mississippi State University have been contacted." The statement also said that he is "very happy" with the progress at Mississippi State and that he would not comment over any other job speculation.

The 39-year-old Mullen is in his third year at Mississippi State, where he has a 20-17 overall record, including a 6-6 mark this season. He led the Bulldogs to a 9-4 record last season and just their second bowl berth in a decade. Mullen was Urban Meyer's offensive coordinator at Florida before coming to Mississippi State.
