The Spartans were starting to hope head coach Mel Tucker’s 2023 would more strongly resemble his 2021 campaign.
Instead on Saturday night multiple media outlets dropped a bombshell outlining sexual misconduct by Tucker. Some was alleged, some admitted. From that point, it appeared only a matter of time until Tucker wasn’t the head coach in East Lansing anymore.
Michigan State’s interim president and athletic director called a 5 p.m. EDT press conference on Sunday. At it, Michigan State announced Tucker had been suspended without pay pending the results of the investigation.
