MSU signs Mel Tucker to 10 year, $95 million extension


Recommended Posts


Michigan State football coach Mel Tucker on Wednesday agreed to a 10-year deal worth $95 million to remain with the Spartans, the school announced.

The new contract, which made headlines around college football last week leading up to the Spartans' game at Ohio State, makes Tucker one of the highest-paid coaches in the sport and comes four days before Michigan State closes its regular season.

Tucker can thank a group of Spartans donors -- Mat Ishbia, Steve St. Andre, Brian Mosallam and Jason Strayhorn -- who gathered to help complete the deal this month, as Michigan State takes a turn toward recruiting.
