CBS Sports ranks Michigan State Football’s Mel Tucker as the 24th best coach in the nation

Mel Tucker has orchestrated one of the fastest turnarounds in college football at Michigan State after taking on retired Mark Dantonio ahead of the 2020 season.

The Spartans struggled to a 2-5 record in Tucker’s COVID-shortened debut season when the head coach was unable to maintain face-to-face communication with his players and coaching staff for most months leading up to this season.

Tucker then immediately and, let’s be honest, shockingly, led Michigan State to 11 wins in 2021. Not even the biggest diehards of die-hard Spartan fans expected that THAT impressive from a season last year.
