This will be a significant loss for Michigan State Spartans head coach Mel Tucker and his squad. DL/DT coach Ron Burton has announced on social media that he’s leaving East Lansing to pursue different opportunities:
Another opening to fill on Mel Tucker’s staff: Ron Burton has been a vital DL/DT coach at MSU since Mark Dantonio hired him before the 2013 season and Tucker kept Burton from leaving for Indiana in 2020. https://t.co/hdKULdoH2o
