Mississippi State is ready to "go all in" to prevent football coach Dan Mullen from leaving the SEC school for another job, SI.com reported Friday, citing an unidentified source.

Bruce Feldman's report comes the day after Mullen's Bulldogs, No. 14 in this week's College Football Playoff rankings, fell to in-state rival Ole Miss.

Mullen — 69-49 in nine seasons, including 8-4 in 2017, in arguably the toughest job in the SEC — currently makes $4.5 million annually at Mississippi State
