Mississippi State fired head coach Joe Moorhead after just two seasons in Starkville, according to college football insider Brett McMurphy.

The last month has been a whirlwind for Moorhead and the MSU program. After defeating Ole Miss in the Egg Bowl, Moorhead temporarily saved his job; however, just four days after losing to Louisville in the Music City Bowl, MSU had seen enough to know that Moorhead couldn’t get it done.

McMurphy’s report cited discipline issues within the team and the late-season swoon as reasons for his firing.

Obviously, not many coaches are fired in January, and this one is certainly the exception. Moorhead seemed to never be a great fit at MSU, and he finished just 14-12 overall, including 7-9 in the SEC. It was tough following the program that Dan Mullen built.
