A native of Cleveland, Tucker was a defensive back at Wisconsin (1990-94).

"It is a blessing and honor to return to Michigan State University where I began my coaching career with Nick Saban", Tucker said.

Tucker left Alabama after that National Championship in 2015 and joined Kirby Smart at Georgia.

Tucker signed a six-year deal worth $5.5 million per season, more than doubling the total compensation from his contract at Colorado, to lead Michigan State's football program.

Tucker, 48, has one season of college football head coaching experience, a 5-7 campaign at Colorado last season. He spent 2005-08 with the Browns - the first three as defensive backs coach and the fourth as defensive coordinator. Per Feldman's report, MSU officials made a second appeal to Tucker after another former Ohio State coach, Luke Fickell, turned the Spartans down to remain at Cincinnati.

Former Colorado football coach Mel Tucker has been hired as the new head coach at Michigan State, and fans of the Buffaloes are feeling betrayed by the move.

Well, according to Wikipedia, which can be edited by anyone, the Spartans next offensive coordinator will be former Ohio State WR and coach, Brian Hartline. He has also been an assistant at Miami of Ohio, Ohio State and was defensive coordinator for three National Football League teams - the Cleveland Browns, Jacksonville Jaguars and Chicago Bears (also serving a stint as Jacksonville's interim head coach in 2011) before returning to the college game at Alabama in 2015.

MSU basketball coach Tom Izzo, who has been with the school since 1995, makes over $4 million a year.

On Tuesday evening, he attended a Colorado booster event before accepting the MSU job hours later.

"We are disappointed to see Coach Tucker leave", CU coach Rick George said via a statement released by the university Wednesday morning.
