STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen is known for his offensive acumen, and his ability to produce great quarterbacks has been particularly impressive.
Building a great defense has proven more of a challenge - especially in recent seasons.
Now Mullen has hired veteran defensive coordinator Todd Grantham , hoping the 50-year-old can help provide a quick turnaround. The Bulldogs gave up nearly 32 points per game last season, which ranked next to last in the Southeastern Conference.
