WATCH: Florida showcases some behind the scenes moments from Dan Mullen’s first day on the job

The pomp and circumstance that comes with a new coach is one of the more exciting parts of college football that isn’t actually a game.

The coach gets off the plane, then waves (or chomps, in this case) to the crowd of journalists and fans awaiting their arrival.

Finally, it concludes with a press conference when the coach tells the fan base how amazing the program will become during their tenure and a lot of them eat up every word.

Florida did just that on Monday and brought Dan Mullen to Gainesville after the ink dried between the school and the former Mississippi State head coach.

Here’s a small behind the scenes look:

Mullen is clearly excited as he sits in the car on the way to campus. He’s then shown sitting down in his office with the three crystal footballs squarely behind him. Finally, he enters Ben Hill Griffin Stadium to see his name and photo up on the big board.

Florida and former Mississippi State athletic director Scott Stricklin can be seen in a few shots as well.

Mullen has every reason to be a happy man after his buyout terms were reported Monday along with his contract, which will continue to make him an even richer man.
