Current Spartans coach Mark Dantonio issued a statement regarding Bullough:

Bullough has a long line of Spartans blood in him, as his son, Chuck, is currently a defensive ends coach. He had two sons play for the Spartans (Shane from 1983-86 and Chuck from 1988-91) as well as three grandsons (Max from 2010-13, Riley from 2013-16 and Byron 2015-18).
