Mullen is 54-35 in his seven seasons at Mississippi State. He served as Urban Meyer's offensive coordinator at Florida during the Tim Tebow era before moving on to his first head job.
Mullen is now one of five coaches known to have interviewed for the job. Butch Davis, Greg Schiano, Larry Scott, and Mark Richt are the other four. UM is also likely to meet with Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski as well, if they haven't already.
A decision seems to be looming. FootballScoop.com continues reporting that they expect Miami to announce the new hire as early as tomorrow.
