After finishing his lone season as the head coach of Colorado and in the college ranks at 5-7, Mel Tucker is now taking over the Michigan State program after Mark Dantonio retired. The school approved a six-year contract for Tucker worth approximately $30 million, which would reportedly make him the 12th-highest paid head college football coach in the country. SI's Pat Forde believes the school's willingness to overpay for the unproven coach shines a bigger light on the student-athlete's lack of being paid despite bringing millions of revenue to the NCAA.
