Michigan State Off. Coordinator/WR Coach

Don Treadwell has left Michigan State to become the new head coach at Miami (Ohio). Treadwell was the offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach. There is the possibility that Mark Dantonio will promote someone from the current staff to offensive coordinator, most likely OL coach Dan Roushar. If not, the Spartans will be looking for a coordinator who can also coach receivers. The coaching tree has come up with the following potential replacements:
