Michigan State football coach Mark Dantonio announces retirement

Michigan State football coach Mark Dantonio announces retirement”

In a stunning turn, Mark Dantonio's tenure as Michigan State football coach has come to an end.

In a tweet posted Tuesday, Dantonio thanked the Spartans and noted stepping down marked one of the "most hard decisions that I have ever made here at Michigan State". MLive.com also reports that he is being accused of committing NCAA violations, citing court documents filed in a motion by former assistant coach Curtis Blackwell. If Blackwell's allegations prove true, Dantonio would be guilty not only of NCAA violations, but potentially of perjury. His contract expired and was renewed on a monthly basis before Dantonio chose to part ways with him in May 2017, calling it a "philosophical change". In his time his teams won three Big Ten titles, a Rose Bowl, a Cotton Bowl and made an appearance in the 2015 College Football Playoff.

Dantonio got his first head coaching job at Cincinnati in 2004, going 18-17 in three seasons before he was hired to replace John L. Smith at Michigan State in 2007.

Penn State and Michigan State meet on November 14, 2020, at Beaver Stadium.

Dantonio, 63, went 114-57 in 13 seasons with the Spartans, including 7-6 in 2019.

Athletic Director Bill Beekman said in the release that Dantonio was an excellent leader and that the department intends to continue his success with their next hire.

Since 2010, the Spartans have posted a 92-40 record, the greatest 10-year run in program history.
