He’s still in East Lansing, and he’s now $4.3 million richer.

The bonus was “in recognition of his long-service to the University”, which include leading the Spartans to the College Football playoff, being the top team in the Big Ten, and being named conference coach of the year.

Despite struggling on the offensive side of the ball the past few seasons, Dantonio has no intention of stepping down from his position, and also infamously refused to make any meaningful changes to the offensive coaching staff.
