STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) — Yahoo Sports and Sports Illustrated reported Thursday night that Mississippi State may dismiss head football coach Joe Moorhead.

Sources told Yahoo's Pete Thamel and SI's Ross Dellenger no decision has been made yet.

Word about MSU possibly firing Moorhead comes the same week the Bulldogs lost the Music City Bowl to Louisville to finish the season at 6-7.

One of the storylines prior to the bowl game was that freshman quarterback Garrett Shrader would not play because he got hurt in a confrontation with linebacker Willie Gay Junior, according to our news partner the Starkville Daily News.
