Michigan State is in a state of void as it pertains to its athletic director search after Bill Beekman stepped away from the position. As the search continues and the school year is set to begin, time is becoming scarce for the Michigan State administration.

As reported to the Detroit Free Press, a group of trustees at Michigan State went to Tom Izzo and requested that he take over the position in an interim basis, until a permanent replacement was found.

Izzo reportedly agreed to do it, knowing it would be in good nature for the university.

President Stanley has made the decision to block that move, citing a candidate will be ready to be brought to the board of trustees in the coming weeks.

Between President Stanley, the board of trustees, Tom Izzo and Mel Tucker, it seems as if there is a lot of disagreement and uncertainty surrounding the search for an athletic director.
