Michigan State football announces Jim Salgado as new cornerbacks coach

Michigan State football had an open spot on its coaching staff with the recent departure of pass rush specialist coach Brandon Jordan to the NFL. Mel Tucker filled that spot on Thursday as the program announced the addition of Jim Salgado as the cornerbacks coach.

Harlon Barnett will still coach the defensive backs as a unit, and Salgado will work directly with the cornerbacks, a position group that struggled last year. Salgado comes to the Spartans with great experience. He coached with the Buffalo Bills for the last six seasons on a great defense.
