Michigan State releases video honoring, thanking Mark Dantonio
After thirteen seasons in East Lansing, Mark Dantonio decided to step down as the head football coach at Michigan State. One of the best coaches of the decade in the B1G resigned on Tuesday, much to the surprise of the college football world.
In 13 seasons with the Spartans, Mark Dantonio won 114 games, the most in program history. He led his teams to 12 bowl games, three B1G championships and one appearance in the College Football Playoff. Dantonio’s teams were also 8-5 against in-state rival Michigan.
Dantonio released a statement on Tuesday, announcing his decision to step down. Later that evening, he held a press conference at the Breslin Center to answer any questions about his choice.
On Thursday, two days after the announcement, Michigan State released a tribute video, thanking and honoring the winningest coach in program history. Below is the video, as published by MSU Football:
