Tom Izzo has been offered the Cavaliers job. You can argue over the semantics of him actually being handed the paperwork, but we know the job is his if he wants it.

 

Dan Gilbert the owner of the Cavs covets Izzo and money will be NO object.

 

Tom Izzo did meet with his players. Izzo listened as they told him that they wanted him to stay and it was a family type meeting. 

 

Izzo is doing what he always does and looking at this from every angle.

 

Tom Izzo has often said that coaching in the NBA would be a dream. If he were ever to go to the NBA this would be the ideal time and place. Dan Gilbert the owner would give him five years to turn around the franchise. He is in his mid fifties and if he doesn’t take this job, I doubt he ever will.

 

Izzo is in Cleveland today. He is touring the facilities and looking at all Cleveland has to offer. 

 

Having said all of the above I expect the situation to be resolved no later than Wednesday next week. I think it will be sooner, but no later than Wednesday.

 

When the dust settles I believe Tom Izzo will be the coach of the Spartans when the season starts.
