New Bulldog Defensive Coordinator/Linebacker Coach Meets with Media

Dan Mullen said he knew within minutes Peter Sirmon was who he wanted to hire. So then how long did it take Sirmon to know he’d want to direct the Mississippi State defense?

Not very long, Sirmon says after sitting down with the Bulldog head coach. “When you first get to know somebody, the words they use, the stories they tell, the things that are on their mind that are important to them.

“After kind of getting to know each other, the biggest thing was just the culture of the kids that he’s recruiting and the culture of the kids on the team. Right now that is just a fundament attribute of begin successful in college football.”

Sirmon spoke to the local press corps for the first time Monday.
