Mississippi State can also do some boasting now. For the 2016 season one of the rising lights in the coaching business has joined Coach Dan Mullen's staff, with Pascagoula native Buckley taking over Bulldog cornerbacks. He will also coordinate recruiting, something his All-American college and All-Pro NFL name won't hurt with either.
For the first time since his January hiring Buckley was able to meet with media to talk about taking this job. Or about coming home, as he calls it.
