Jeff Mullen (born c. 1968) is an American football offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach and the current offensive coordinator of the Charlotte 49ers. Mullen was previously an assistant coach at Ohio University, Wake Forest, and West Virginia University.

Early life[edit]

Jeff Mullen attended Wittenberg University in Ohio, where he was a four-year letterwinner and a 1989 All-American selection at defensive back.

Mullen received his bachelor's degree in sociology from Wittenberg in 1990 and a master's degree in athletic administration from Ohio University in 1993.

Mullen began his coaching career at Hamilton Township High School in Ohio in 1990 where he coached under Mark Hundley. He then served as a defensive graduate assistant for the University of Hawai'i in 1991.

Coaching career[edit]

Ohio University[edit]

After leaving Hawai'i, Mullen moved to Ohio University in 1992 as an offensive graduate assistant. He spent two seasons as a graduate assistant, then moved to video coordinator and administrative assistant in 1994. In December of the same year, Mullen became the fullbacks coach under new head coach Jim Grobe's arrival.

In 1996, Mullen moved to tight ends and offensive tackles under Grobe.

Wake Forest[edit]

Following his nine seasons at Ohio, Mullen followed head coach Jim Grobe to Wake Forest with most of the staff from Ohio.

In 2001 and 2002, Mullen coached tackles Tim Bennett and Mark Moroz. Moroz earned honorable mention for the All-ACC team. He also coached tight end Ray Thomas and fullback Ovie Mughelli, both whom played professional football. Mughelli was a fourth round NFL Draft selection after rushing for 12 touchdowns, the most in 30 years in school history.

In 2003, Mullen moved to coach the quarterbacks under Grobe. Mullen coached some of the greatest quarterbacks in school history, including Cory Randolph, Ben Mauk, and Riley Skinner. Randolph finished as the 10th leading passer in school history, and the third most accurate. Mauk started six games and led the Deacons in passing yards in 2005, before being injured and transferring to the University of Cincinnati during the 2006 season. Skinner took over for Mauk in 2006, and led the team in passing in 2007 with 2,204 yards and 12 touchdowns. He also set the ACC single-season completion percentage record in 2007.

West Virginia[edit]
