But somebody was missing.

That somebody is former MSU head coach Mark Dantonio.

Though Dantonio did release a statement welcoming Tucker to Spartan Nation, he was nowhere to be seen during the press conference, which had many talking about why he was not there.

Well, thanks to Tony Paul of The Detroit News, we have an answer as to why Dantonio was not at the presser.

From Detroit News:

MSU now has issued an official reason for Dantonio’s absence Wednesday night.

“Coach Dantonio was out of town, and not able to attend,” said Emily Guerrant, a spokesperson for the university, in response to a question from The Detroit News.
