Michigan State hires Mel Tucker as head coach

Michigan State confirmed the hiring at 11 a.m. via Twitter. The addition of Tucker ends the Spartans' high-profile search to replace longtime coach Mark Dantonio, who abruptly resigned February 4. Saleh is a former Michigan State assistant, who is now the defensive coordinator for the San Francisco 49ers and wanted to stay in the NFL.

Tucker went 5-7 in his first year at Colorado.

Tucker served as the defensive coordinator at Georgia under Kirby Smart prior to taking the job at Colorado. He was Alabama's DC in 2015 and has served on the defensive staff at Ohio State, LSU, and Miami (Ohio).

Tucker was on staff at Alabama when the Crimson Tide won the 2015 national championship.

Last week, it was announced that long-time Michigan State head coach Mark Dantonio would be stepping down. The 48-year-old Tucker is from Cleveland and was a Big Ten championship-winning defensive back at Wisconsin.

Colorado coach Mel Tucker looks for a call during the first half of the team's NCAA college football game against Washington on Saturday, Nov. 23, 2019, in Boulder, Colo. Saleh is a former Michigan State assistant who is now the defensive coordinator for the San Francisco 49ers and Shurmur, a former Spartans player and assistant, is offensive coordinator for the Denver Broncos. The Buffaloes finished one win shy of their second bowl game in 12 seasons.

The CU athletic department confirmed Tucker's resignation just before 8:45 a.m. Wednesday.

Tucker comes with National Football League experience, too, as he was the defensive coordinator for the Chicago Bears, Cleveland Browns, and Jacksonville Jaguars.

Tucker began his coaching career in 1997 at Michigan State as a graduate assistant. Now Tucker finally has the head coaching position he deserves at a Power Five school.

His contract also says MSU will pay for or reimburse Tucker for a country club membership at a club of his choosing. When Fickell declined Michigan State's job offer on Monday morning, the Spartan search committee, led by Athletic Director Bob Beekman, circled back and made a hard run at Tucker.
