Amidst a slew of rumors about interest from other schools and internal negotiations around a contract extension, Michigan State football head coach Mel Tucker made an appearance on the debut episode of The Draymond Green Show this week and made some comments that should soothe the anxieties of many Spartan fans.

You can see his full remarks below:

“That’s my goal. I made it clear in my initial press conferences that I thought that Michigan State is a destination job, and not a stepping stone,” Tucker said on the first episode of ‘The Draymond Green Show’. “I have Big Ten roots. I played at Wisconsin, I’m from Cleveland, Ohio, my parents are 3 hours and 15 minutes away, my wife is from Chicago. I know the Big Ten landscape. This is where I started my career in 1997 as a graduate assistant for Nick Saban, so Michigan State is a special place for me. So it was never my intention to come here and just pass through. I believe that we’re building something special here, and I’ve had tremendous support here to do that. We’re on the right track.”
