On Wednesday, Michigan State introduced Mel Tucker as their next head football coach.

During Tucker’s introductory press conference, he was asked about a timeline for hiring his assistants and if he had made a decision regarding any of the coaches who assisted former MSU head coach Mark Dantonio.

Tucker said that things would come together rather quickly and according to a report, Tucker will not retain any of Dantonio’s assistants.

From Detroit Free Press:

The assistant coaches not being retained are defensive coordinator Mike Tressel, defensive backs coach Paul Haynes, defensive ends coach Chuck Bullough, offensive coordinator Brad Salem, quarterbacks coach Dave Warner, offensive line coach Jim Bollman, wide receivers coach Don Treadwell and tight ends coach Mark Staten. Bollman changed his Twitter bio on Thursday night to “former coach.”

Two other Dantonio assistants have found new jobs: Terrence Samuel is the new wide receivers/passing game coordinator at UNLV, while defensive tackles coach Ron Burton reportedly has been hired by Indiana.
