Tebow says Mullen probably won't call plays
By Joe Schad ESPN.com
Florida quarterback Tim Tebow said Saturday night that it is unlikely offensive coordinator Dan Mullen, who has been named head coach at Mississippi State, will call plays at the national championship game.
Mullen has said he would try to balance his new job and his job at Florida. Tebow, who had just spoken with Mullen, said Florida might go to a play-calling-by-committee scenario.
Among those who would likely to be involved -- coach Urban Meyer, wide receivers coach Billy Gonzales and offensive line coach Steve Addazio.
Tebow spoke after receiving the majority of first place votes but finishing third at the Heisman.
"I don't have to try to use it as motivation, it just is," Tebow said. "And it is for my teammates, too."
