With each and every year he continues to coach the Michigan State Spartans basketball program, Tom Izzo only adds to his remarkable resumé. His seven Final Four appearances in this millennium are most among active coaches in college basketball.

His Spartans are currently 12-0, ranked #1 in the country and, once again, are a heavy favorite to make another trip to the Final Four. Should that happen, it would be of the highest culmination in more ways than one for Izzo.

On Monday, the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame announced all eligible candidates for the 2016 Hall of Fame class and MSU’s Izzo is one of 44 North American men’s nominees eligible for enshrinement. He is one of 13 names eligible for the first time and one of 20 coaches up for the Hall of Fame.

Some of the notable players nominated for the 2016 class include Tim HardawayAllen IversonShaquille O’Neal, and Chris Webber. Coaches being considered include Gene KeadyGlenn Robinson, and Eddie Sutton.

Both Iverson and O’Neal are first-timers as well.

The finalists for the 2016 Hall of Fame class will be announced in Toronto during the NBA All-Star break on Friday, February 12th of 2016. The class is unveiled on the day of the NCAA Men’s Basketball National Championship Game in Houston on Monday, April 4th and enshrinement takes place September 8th-10th.
