STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) -- Mississippi State receivers coach Angelo Mirando has resigned because of "unforeseen personal issues" less than two weeks before the season opener against Jackson State.

Mirando was a graduate assistant under head coach Dan Mullen for two seasons before becoming a full-time assistant in 2011.

In a statement released by the university, Mirando said "it is in my best interest to resign from Mississippi State." He also said he wanted to "stress that these issues are personal."

Mullen said he would "take some time to evaluate what our next steps will be with that staff position, but I'm confident in our veteran group of wide receivers and know they'll be focused and ready to go" in the season opener on Sept. 1.
