Mississippi State’s coaching search took a turn late Monday night when USA Today’s Dan Wolken reported that Penn State OC Joe Moorhead is in the mix.
SOURCES: A new name has emerged in the Mississippi State search. Penn State offensive coordinator Joe Moorhead is in the mix, @usatodaysports has learned.

Mississippi State appears to be targeting young(ish) coordinators (Venables, Pruitt and Moorhead are all well under 50 years old) from big-time programs. That’s a strategy that has worked for many programs over the years, and it worked in Starkville when Mississippi State hired Mullen away from Florida nine years ago.
This will be a story to watch in the coming days.
