For the first time in a long time, Mark Dantonio is not the head coach of the Michigan State football team.
Dantonio stepped down this past week and now the search is on to find his replacement.
On Friday evening, reports surfaced that the Spartans would be interviewing Luke Fickell (Cincinnatti) and Mel Tucker (Colorado) this weekend, while Pat Narduzzi (Pittsburgh) has already said he is not leaving his current program.
Though it is not yet clear if Tucker actually interviewed, he just tweeted out that he is not leaving Colorado.
“While I am flattered to be considered for the HC job at Michigan State, I am committed to Colorado football for the build of our program, its great athletes, coaches & supporters.” Tucker tweeted.
While I am flattered to be considered for the HC job @MSU_football, I am committed to @CUBuffsFootball for #TheBuild of our program, its great athletes, coaches & supporters. #UnfinishedBusiness #GoBuffs

It is starting to look more and more like it is now Luke Fickell or bust for the MSU football program.
