Michigan State and coach Mel Tucker have agreed to a contract extension, a source told The Athletic on Wednesday. Yahoo Sports first reported the sides were expected to finalize a deal.
The deal puts an end to rumors about Tucker’s future at Michigan State. Tucker, who is in his second season with the school, is here to stay.
The Spartans fell to 9-2 on the season with a 56-7 loss to Ohio State on Saturday. That dropped them from No. 7 to No. 12 in the College Football Playoff rankings ahead of this week’s game against Penn State.
