When will Tom Izzo hang up the whistle at Breslin Center? For those hoping his reign is coming to an end, think again.

Izzo is at the ripe young age of 67. And he’s only getting started entering Year 28.

As a guest on theĀ Draymond Green Show, Izzo told the former Spartans star that he feels “rejuvenated” heading into the 2022-23 season. After leading Michigan State to the 2nd Round of the NCAA tournament, the veteran coach is looking to make another deep postseason run to the Final Four.

“I know one thing I’m not gonna do: I’ve watched some guys stay or year or two too long,” Izzo said. “I’m not into anything but the day that I feel I don’t want to take redeyes, I don’t want to go out recruiting, I don’t want to have meetings in my office like some of the ones we had, I’m gone. And, if I’m not, I know you [Green] will tell me. … I got some guys that will tell me, ‘It’s time.'”

Izzo, who was hired in 1995, hopes to bring the Spartans back to brighter days. Over the last 27 years, he’s led Michigan State to 8 Final Four appearances and a national championship title in 2000.

Speculation began this offseason that Izzo could be looking to retire after an early exit from the tournament. Instead, Spartans athletic director Alan Haller announced in August that the school and Izzo had agreed to terms on a new 5-year extension.

Izzo said that one of the major factors that led to him wanting to stay was the rejuvenation of the football program. Led by Mel Tucker, the Spartans finished 11-2 last season, picking up a monumental 31-21 win over No. 11 Pitt in the Peach Bowl last December.

“Right now, the campus, it’s electric right now. Mel [Tucker] has done an excellent job. We’ve put $70 million into football. We just put a bunch into hockey. We got cranes in the sky again. We got students walking. Two years of COVID. Two-and-a-half years, we had nobody walking around. … I’m energized by that.”
