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

    Michigan State is expected to complete a historic contract extension for head football coach Mel Tucker on Wednesday night, sources with direct knowledge of the deal told The Detroit News.

    The Spartans’ second-year coach agreed to a reported 10-year, $95 million extension that makes him 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.

    “I came here and I made it clear in my initial press conference that I thought that Michigan State was a destination job and not a stepping stone,” Tucker said recently on the “Draymond Green Show.” “Obviously, I have Big Ten roots. I played at Wisconsin, I’m from Cleveland, Ohio, my parents are three hours and 15 minutes away, my wife is from Chicago. I know the Big Ten landscape. This is where I started my career in 1997 as a graduate assistant for Nick Saban.
