Kirk Herbstreit reveals why Dan Mullen is ‘perfect fit’ with Florida

Kirk Herbstreit gave Florida big praise for its hire of former Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen.

On Monday, the noted ESPN analyst used Twitter to give his opinion on why the former Gators offensive coordinator is “a perfect fit” with Florida. For emphasis, Herbstreit added the hashtag “HereComeTheGators.”

It will be fun to see how Mullen does with the Gators. He was Florida’s offensive coordinator from 2005 to 2008, before serving as Mississippi State’s coach since 2009. So he’s familiar with the landscape in Gainesville.

Mullen proved his ability to develop strong offenses at Mississippi State, and new offensive life is what Florida needs. If he can lift the Gators to national contention, Mullen will make Florida fans excited quickly.

This new era of Gators football will be cool to follow, as Herbstreit knows.
