REPORT: Michigan State basketball assistant coach a candidate for Detroit Mercy job

After a disappointing season that saw the Spartans fall in the second round of the NCAA Tournament, many fans have been asking for Tom Izzo to make some staff changes. According to a report from Tony Paul of the Detroit News, Izzo may be forced to make that change, as Michigan State basketball assistant coach Mark Montgomery has been flagged as a ‘serious candidate’ for the Detroit Mercy head coaching job.

Montgomery was an assistant at Detroit Mercy in 2021 and was the former head coach of Northern Illinois.
