GREENSBORO, Ga. – Mississippi State football coach Dan Mullen is set to compete in the eighth annual Chick-fil-A Bowl Challenge charity golf tournament, joining 10 other NCAA head coaches in vying for a share of the $520,000 scholarship purse for their universities.

The nation’s premier head coach and celebrity golf event will be held April 27-29 at the Reynolds Plantation resort on Lake Oconee outside Atlanta. In the past seven years, the Chick-fil-A Bowl Challenge has provided more than $4 million in scholarship and charitable contributions.

“This event is really a celebration of college football, with National Coaches of the Year, Heisman Trophy winners and celebrity alumni, all representing their universities in a competition for scholarship money for their schools,” said Gary Stokan, president and CEO of the Chick-fil-A Bowl.

The Chick-fil-A Bowl Challenge main event features pairings that include a university head coach and a celebrity or former athlete from the same school competing in a scramble format against other university teams from around the country. The tournament will be broadcast by ESPN in August and December. Specific dates will be announced this summer.

The 11 university teams will be vying for the $125,000 first-place prize, with all teams receiving a portion of the $520,000 scholarship purse.

Mullen will be joined by former Bulldog Fred McCrary for the event. For more information, visit www.Chick-fil-ABowlChallenge.com.
