Jay Johnson, Michigan State’s offensive coordinator, met with reporters Tuesday following Michigan State’s rough loss to Rutgers in Week 7.

The Spartans are freefalling and were even before the firing of Mel Tucker at the end of September. Regardless, Johnson told reporters Tuesday that he’s happy with how MSU has bounced back to prepare for this week’s rivalry matchup against Michigan.

He also noted that the Spartans have made progress in “the process of the play” despite struggles to take care of the football.

Michigan State’s offense is in the middle of the pack in the b1G, but has changed some since Noah Kim exited against the Scarlet Knights with an injury. Johnson said Tuesday that he’s been pleased with Katin Houser’s approach since stepping in.
