Here is what PFF had to say about Mullen’s COY-worthy season: “Yes, the Oklahoma game was an ugly one for both Kyle Trask and the Florida passing offense as a whole, but let’s not ignore the work Dan Mullen did when he had his slew of receiving weapons at his disposal. He took this Florida passing offense from good in 2018 and 2019 to one of the best in the country in 2020:
Florida Gators Passing offense under Mullen (ranks among FBS programs) Season EPA per pass play Passing grade 2020 0.29 (11th) 92.0 (t-4th) 2019 0.17 (23rd) 70.4 (t-58th) 2018 0.06 (38th) 72.7 (55th)
No SEC offense turned more
