Moorhead doesn't seem to have any ill feelings toward his now former team, as he took to Twitter to thank the organization for everything they did for him. Although, he did call it a "emotional day," and said that he was "proud" of everything he accomplished with the program in his short time there.
There are no specific incidents that Moorhead was responsible for that have come out to explain what the other problems could be "beyond wins and losses," but the program was worried about the culture and discipline in the locker room. Unfortunately for Moorhead, his tenure there ended with a 38-28 loss to the Louisville Cardinals in the Music City Bowl. Sources say that the program was also unhappy with the team's performance in that bowl loss, but even more so at the fact that quarterback Garrett Schrader missed the game with an eye injury, which was suffered during an altercation at practice.
In his two seasons, Moorhead went 14-12 with the Bulldogs, and was rumored to get fired if they lost the Egg Bowl to Ole Miss on November 28th. Although, when Mississippi State won that game, it was thought that Moorhead's job was safe, but locker room culture has proven to be even more important to this program.
