New Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen has added longtime associate John Hevesy to his staff.
Like Mullen, Hevesy has been part of Urban Meyer's coaching staff at Bowling Green, Utah and Florida over the last eight years, serving as a tight ends and offensive line coach. He has coached in four BCS bowls, including the 2006 and 2008 national championship games.
Hevesy is the fifth assistant coach hired by Mullen since he was tabbed to replace Coach Sylvester Croom. Other coaches hired are Mark Hudspeth, Les Koening, Carl Torbush and Frank Wilson.
Mullen will assign duties to his coaching staff later.
