The Mississippi State Bulldogs interviewed former Auburn Tigers head coach Gene Chizik for their open head coaching position, according to The Athletic's Bruce Feldman, but Chizik removed himself from consideration the following morning.

"Wouldn't be surprised if Chizik returns to coaching," Feldman added, "just has to be an ideal fit."

ESPN's Adam Rittenberg and Sports Illustrated's Ross Dellenger also reported on Chizik's involvement in Mississippi State's ongoing coaching search:
