    MSU, Mel Tucker complete landmark 10-year, $95M contract extension

    Michigan State completed a historic contract extension for head football coach Mel Tucker on Wednesday night, the university announced.

    Michigan State confirmed the new contract is a 10-year deal worth $95 million. According to the school’s release, Tucker’s contract is valued at $9.5 million per year, including a $5.9 million base salary, $3.2 million in supplemental compensation for media and personal appearances, plus a $400,000 contingent annual bonus. The contract expires on Jan. 15, 2032.

    The new deal makes Tucker the highest-paid coach in the Big Ten and the second-highest paid coach in the country behind Alabama’s Nick Saban, a former MSU coach who makes $9.753 million.

    “Every day I wake up feeling humbled to be the Head Football Coach at Michigan State,” Tucker said in a statement provided to The News. “It is my privilege to work alongside our student-athletes, coaches and staff who embody our culture of hard work, discipline, and excellence — on and off the field.

    “Thank you to our Board of Trustees, President Stanley and our administration, Alan Haller and the athletics staff, our incredible donors and fans — and of course Coach Izzo for the support and resources you provide MSU to build Spartan football — we could not do it without you.
