Over the past 48 hours sources have told FootballScoop Mississippi State officials have held discussions regarding moving on from Joe Moorhead.
This evening multiple national reporters have reported similar (see below).
To our knowledge no action has been taken as of this evening; but we had heard all along that tomorrow was the decision day.

Mississippi State officials have been in deep discussion about coach Joe Moorhead's future since the bowl loss. No decision yet, sources say.
Events of the last month – a fight at practice, ugly bowl loss – have possibly shifted a post-Egg Bowl plan to keep Moorhead.

Am told next 24-48 hours will be key, as the situation needs to be resolved one way or the other. If Miss State makes a change, Louisiana’s Billy Napier could be a strong candidate. He received a 2-year contract extension through 2025 season today. https://t.co/T3OZRMLCom
