The pairing between Moorhead and the program never was “a great fit,” a source said.
“Coach Moorhead was a highly-respected offensive coordinator at Penn State, but as a head coach with the Bulldogs, it’s been lackluster,” a source said. “It could be the strength of the conference or even the expectations, but it clearly wasn’t clicking.”
In the Music City Bowl loss, the Bulldogs blew a 14-0 second quarter lead as UL outscored MSU 38-14 in the final 38 minutes.
The Bulldogs finished 6-7, tying for the most losses at Mississippi State in the past 11 seasons. It also marked MSU’s third losing season since 2009.
It doesn’t sound like Moorhead had very much control over his team. Losing your quarterback after a fight with a teammate isn’t a great sign.
