    Default Source: Colorado's Mel Tucker expected to become Michigan State coach

    Michigan State is set to hire Colorado's Mel Tucker as its next football coach, sources told ESPN.

    Tucker, who officially resigned as the Buffaloes' head coach after just one season on Wednesday, was one of several candidates to seemingly turn down Michigan State's initial overtures. He became the focus of the school's search late Sunday and throughout Monday, sources said.

    "We are disappointed to see Coach Tucker leave," Colorado athletic director Rick George said in a statement Wednesday. "We are excited about the upward trajectory of our football program and we'll get to work immediately hiring the next head coach to build on our momentum and lead our young men. We're confident this program is on the verge of competing at the highest level and has the resources and support in place to do so for a long time."

    On Saturday, Tucker tweeted that he remained committed to Colorado after speaking with Michigan State about its coaching vacancy.

    He's not the first to do so but i understand players and parents gripes. When your kids commit and you tell them you are going to be there and then bolt thats just shady shit right there. The good news is CU needs to find a coach who really wants to be there.

    I think I'm starting to understand why college is so expensive.

    Default Keeler: Mel Tucker played CU Buffs, Pac-12, Larry Scott for chumps

    BOULDER — Midnight Mel was never more than a rental. We knew that from the minute he rolled in, another Midwest transplant who saw the mountains and reached for the sky.

    “We are going to build it the right way, because if you build it the right way, that means you can sustain it,” Mel Tucker said Dec. 6, 2018, as he was introduced to CU Buffs fans at the Champions Center. “This is a no-excuse program as of right now.”

    This is a no-coach program as of Wednesday morning.

    Midnight Mel charmed the pants off us. That might explain, in part, the mix of rage and sadness as the realization rose with the dawn.

    We got played. All of us. CU, especially. The Buffs were a stepping stone. A leverage ploy.

    Michigan State swooped in, waved a wad of Mike Gundy money in his face, and that was that. Fourteen months flew by in a blink, save for the last five days, which felt more like 50.

    Default Michigan State's Overpaying to Land Mel Tucker Epitomizes a Broken System

    The state of college athletics, as viewed through the events of Tuesday, Feb. 11, 2020:

    Congress brings NCAA president Mark Emmert to Capitol Hill and tells him and the rest of the association to get its act together. A Senate subcommittee wants a tangible plan for compensating athletes, and Emmert offers none. Later, a Michigan State football coaching search in total disarray finds the only way out—throwing a king’s ransom in salary at a coach with a career 5–7 record to lure him away after one season at Colorado, where he will leave a fresh signing class and everyone else in the lurch.

    Is this a great system or what?

    Says I’ve reached my article limit and I haven’t been to their website in years. Weird. Can you post the list of candidates, Carol?
