Former Michigan target throws shade at MSU

Former Michigan target throws shade at MSU

His budget for assistants and strength and conditioning coaches will also increase significantly.

Tucker's six-year contract pays him an annual base salary of $3.8 million from the university.

Tucker said Michigan State showed interest in him late last week and the feeling was mutual.

Tucker went 5-7 in his first year at Colorado. Prior to that, he was defensive coordinator at Georgia under Kirby Smart from 2016-18 and defensive backs coach under Nick Saban at Alabama in 2015. He was Alabama's DC in 2015 and has served on the defensive staff at Ohio State, LSU, and Miami (Ohio).

According to 247Sports, MSU was not one of Rice's reported offers as a recruit, but naturally, Tucker would be opportunistic to get any of his signees to Colorado to transfer to East Lansing. He was tabbed as a Top 25 recruiter by Rivals.com in 2018.

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. The Buffaloes finished one win shy of their second bowl game in 12 seasons. Colorado beat Colorado State, Nebraska, and Arizona State in September.

Tucker also was an assistant at Ohio State as a defensive backs coach when it won a national title under Jim Tressel, whose nephew, Mike Tressel, was Michigan State's interim coach briefly this month. Tucker on the other hand has been climbing the coaching ranks year by year. He was the defensive coordinator for the Cleveland Browns in 2008 and the Jacksonville Jaguars (2009-2012). Now Tucker finally has the head coaching position he deserves at a Power Five school.

Tucker also spent more than a decade in the National Football League as a defensive backs coach and defensive coordinator for the Cleveland Browns, Jacksonville Jaguars and Chicago Bears.

Michigan State scheduled a board meeting for later Wednesday to formally approve the hire and a news conference with Tucker was scheduled for early evening.

Tucker and his wife JoEllyn have two sons, Joseph and Christian.
