Line: Michigan State He was emotional again only a few hours later when fans packed the Breslin Center to welcome the gritty Spartans back to campus.
This season might be remembered as the best coaching job in Izzo's long career at Michigan State, reaching his eighth Final Four with a short-handed team that lost two underclassmen to the pros last year. It has also been an emotional time for the Hall of Fame coach. Last season, some wondered if the Larry Nassar sexual abuse scandal and its deep ties to Michigan State would drive Izzo away as he answered questions about the behavior of some of his former players.
Years ago, the Cleveland Cavaliers and Atlanta Hawks tried to lure him to the NBA and other college programs have taken runs at hiring him.
Each time there was a chance for him to go, Izzo stayed at the school that hired him as a part-time assistant in and promoted him to head coach in And for that, he's thankful to still be on the banks of the Red Cedar River.
But the number of people you impact is off the charts here. If that many alums are that excited, it really does excite me and makes my day. That's why I coach. I coach for our players and our alums. Second-seeded Michigan State faces third-seeded Texas Tech on Saturday night, playing for a spot in the championship game Monday night against the winner of the Virginia-Auburn game.
Izzo has led the Spartans to the Final Four for an eighth time, a total no coach or program can match since He has cut down the nets on the biggest stage of all only once — and that drives him daily, if not every minute he is awake.
How would he respond to critics who say he needs another national title to validate his tenure? I want to say it because if that's your goal for me, I promise you my goals are bigger than your goals for me.
