Mullen adds Koenning to Mississippi State staff

Posted by ESPN.com's Chris Low

New Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen has added Les Koenning to his offensive staff. Mullen had previously hired North Alabama head coach Mark Hudspeth, who's expected to coordinate the passing game for the Bulldogs.

Koenning had been at South Alabama previously. Before that, he was at Texas A&M for five seasons as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. Koenning was at Alabama as offensive coordinator before that during Dennis Franchione's short stay in Tuscaloosa.

This isn't Koenning's first stint at Mississippi State. He was running backs and receivers coach for the Bulldogs under Rockey Felker from 1986-89.
