“Neither I, my agent nor the administration at Mississippi State University has spoken to anybody at Penn State,” Mullen told the Daily Journal on Friday. “We will no longer be commenting on any of the speculations regarding jobs.”
A writer for the Rivals.com Penn State affiliate said on Twitter that Mullen would be interviewing on Monday, but the information was not attributed to anyone at Penn State or MSU, or to any other source.
Mullen will be in the Northeast on Monday, for the College Football Hall of Fame dinner in New York City. Athletics director Scott Stricklin, who declined comment, and several MSU boosters will accompany Mullen.
“I’m very happy with the direction the program is going in,” Mullen said, “and I’m looking forward to the bowl game.”
