I saw this storyline that I had not known about much in college football here in the last few days. But University of Florida’s coach (Dan Mullen) wife (Megan Mullen) has some weird kissing antic thing with players before Gator games.
The video above has since been deleted. Here is that video:
As you can see she doesn’t kiss everyone. She hugs some, kisses some, grabs some by the necks.
@4lisaguerrero I just found out Florida Gator head football coach Dan Mullen’s wife (Megan) kisses all the players on the lips “for luck” as they getnoff the bus. This would lite a fire if it were Dan kissing the cheerleaders on the lips as they get off the bus, right? Thoughts? pic.twitter.com/TlybJWXu8I

Many people found this Megan Mullen thing disturbing:
Lost count of the number of things wrong with this. Let’s start with unwanted touching (sexual assault?) by someone in power. Disagree? What do you think happens if a player pulls away? What if the husband of a volleyball coach kissed all the female players before each game? https://t.co/CpC7Aj7YUX

Dan Mullen’s Wife Is Sexually Harassing The University of Florida’s Football Team
Megan Mullen kisses players before every game. That isn’t a tradition, it’s obscene behavior.

I could spend time giving you countless examples of how this type of misbehavior has a historical context that always winds up with the black men in these situations suffering, while the white woman is always protected. It seems that Florida’s football program still hasn’t learned its lesson. Because as we lived in a heightened era of sexual assault and harassment, this same program was in the news earlier this year when former freshman quarterback Jalon Jones was accused of sexual battery involving two female students on the same night.
And while Jones ended up transferring, things were supposedly so uncomfortable that his roommate, Chris Steele, would also transfer due to how the football staff handled his request as he tried to get away from Jones by asking to be placed in a different dorm.
So apparently Megan Mullen has been doing this for a while as she did this at Mississippi State during their traditional “Dog Walk”. Is it weird? Yeah. Should she stop this? Yeah. Is it sexual assault? No. But maybe Florida needs to put the end of this immediately because it’s weird, unneccesary and downright creepy.
