Michigan State Fires Mel Tucker

Mel Tucker has officially coached his final game for the Michigan State Spartans. Tucker was suspended last week for sexual harassment allegations against Brenda Tracy. Michigan State has now started to process toward firing their head coach.

Pete Thamel at ESPN was the first to report the news:

“Michigan State University informed head football coach Mel Tucker in a letter Monday of the school’s “intent to terminate” his contract for cause, citing “a body of undisputed evidence of misconduct that warrants termination.”

Michigan State delivered the notice in a five-page letter from athletic director Alan Haller, which details what the university sees as “unprofessional and unethical behavior.”

Tucker, 51, will finish his tenure with Michigan State with a record of  18-9. I’m also not sure that’s a good indication of where the program was going under Tucker. The now departed Tucker went 11-2 and won the Peach Bowl in his first year. He probably owes Kenneth Walker a big thank you card. Tucker’s stock at Michigan State plummeted after and key players like Keon Coleman started departing the program through the transfer portal.

Michigan State is going to struggle given the dysfunction going on with the program. The Spartans just got whooped 41-7 to No. 8 Washington this past weekend. More importantly, Tucker has more than $79 million remaining on his contract and is in the second year of a ten-year deal. I would imagine that the school is going to try to get out of that deal given the allegations.
