Miss. State coach Mullen reprimanded by SEC

Oct 26, 2009 - 7:57 PM BIRMINGHAM, Ala.(AP) -- Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen has been reprimanded by the Southeastern Conference for criticizing the replay official who worked the Bulldogs' game against Florida.

Commissioner Mike Slive said on Monday in a statement released by the league that Mullen violated the SEC code of ethics.

On Sunday, Mullen said the replay official who worked the Bulldogs' 29-19 loss to Florida should be disciplined for not overturning an interception return for a touchdown in the fourth quarter by Gators linebacker Dustin Doe, who might have fumbled before reaching the goal line.

The replay official listed for the game in Starkville on Saturday night was Dan Dembinski.
