It appears Michigan State is close to locking up Mel Tucker as its head football coach for a while.

Earlier this week, it was reported by Rico Beard of 97.1 The Ticket that Michigan State and Tucker were working on a contract extension with a sizeable pay raise. On Saturday, that report was further supported by national sports radio host Colin Cowherd of Fox Sports.

Cowherd tweeted on Saturday morning that Michigan State and Tucker are “close to a new deal” and that negotiations are “moving quickly.” The new deal is also considered a “huge” offer by Cowherd.

See the full tweet from Cowherd below:

Tucker has been rumored as a candidate to take over at LSU, with some believing he’d be the favorite for that opening. However, a contract extension for Tucker would end any concerns of him leaving after this season.
