His name was being brought up in connection with the LSU opening, but new reports suggest Tucker is on the verge of a massive contract to remain in East Lansing.

Based on his comments to Michigan State alum Draymond Green on “The Draymond Green Show” this week, it sure sounds like Tucker is staying put:

Mel Tucker’s first public comments on his potential #MichiganState contract extension, via The Draymond Green Show (airing right now):

 

“I came here, and I made it clear in my initial press conferences that I thought Michigan State was a destination job and not a stepping stone,” Tucker said. “Obviously, I have Big Ten roots. I played at Wisconsin. I’m from Cleveland, Ohio, and my parents are 3 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, so Michigan State is a special place to me.
“It was never my intention to come here and just pass through. I believe that we are building something special here and I have tremendous support here to do that, and we are on the right track.”
