Mississippi State Fires Joe Moorhead After 2 Seasons

Mississippi State has decided to fire head football coach Joe Moorhead after only two seasons with the team according to Brett McMurphy.

Moorhead was hired after being Penn State’s offensive coordinator. He went 14-12 in his two seasons with Mississippi State.

According to McMurphy, Moorhead was let go because the Bulldogs lost games down the stretch, including the Music City Bowl against Louisville. He also had issues within the program, as quarterback Garrett Schrader suffered a facial injury during a team fight leading up to the bowl game. The last nail in the coffin was that he wasn’t a good fit, which should have been known before he was hired, as he had never coached in the south before.

Mississippi State will now have to find a coach way later than most schools usually do, which will limit their options.
