The school of­fi­cially an­nounced the hir­ing Wed­nes­day. Moor­head, 44, re­places Mullen, who left after nine suc­cess­ful sea­sons for Florida.

“I am thrilled to take the reins of an SEC pro­gram that has been as suc­cess­ful as this one has the past decade,” Moor­head said in a state­ment. “I look for­ward to get­ting to know the young men on our team, hir­ing a staff and hit­ting the re­cruit­ing trail quickly.”
