Report: MSU To Hire Colorado’s Tucker As New HC
Multiple media outlets are reporting that Michigan State University has found the school's replacement for Mark Dantonio as their head football coach.
He is University of Colorado head coach Mel Tucker (pictured), who originally turned down the position in a tweet posted last Saturday afternoon. Here's Coach Tucker's tweet:
However, it is reported that MSU came back to Tucker after Cincinnati's Luke Fickell turned MSU down earlier this week.
SpartanMag.com reports that the deal is for five years for just over $25 million. The Mag reports that the deal isn't signed yet, and Tucker still needs approval from the MSU Board of Trustees. But that could come as soon as Wednesday.
