Dantonio took the job at Michigan State prior to the 2007 season. In 12 years in East Lansing, he’s compiled a 107-51 record. He’s led his teams to bowl appearances 11 times, missing the postseason just once in 2016.
The Spartans have won 10 games or more six times under Dantonio.
Last year, Michigan State finished the season 7-6, including a 7-6 loss to Oregon in the Redbox Bowl. Though the Spartans fielded one of the nation’s top defensive teams, they struggled to score points on the other side of the ball.
After so many offensive struggles, Dantonio made tweaks to his offensive coaching staff, rearranging positions.
