Staff Writer

Mississippi State’s Dan Mullen was one of five head coaches elected to the Board of Trustees of the American Football Coaches Association at the organization’s national convention on Tuesday. Mullen (55-35, .611) owns the highest winning percentage as a State coach since the late College Football Hall of Famer Allyn McKeen from 1939-48 (.764), and he is third in school history in victories (55). In the eight years prior to Mullen’s arrival, the Bulldogs were 32-65.
