Mississippi State fires Joe Moorhead

MERIDAN, Miss. (WTOK) - Mississippi State University has fired Coach Joe Moorhead after 2 seasons.

Moorhead held a record of 14-12 during his time at MSU, and secured two Egg Bowl wins in the process. The teams late season slump and disciplinary issues were most likely the deciding factor. MSU failed to capture a bowl game win this season and last year with losses in the Outback Bowl and the Music City Bowl.

In Moorhead's two seasons with MSU, the Bulldogs were only 3-12 against Power Five teams that had a winning record.
