Michigan State’s Mark Dantonio held announced on Thursday night that he was shuffling around his offensive staff with no offensive coaches being fired.
Yup, he really went on a limb to breathe some life into the offense.
This announcement came hours after rival Michigan and Jim Harbaugh hired Josh Gattis from Alabama to be its new offensive coordinator.
Michigan State fans had hoped for an offseason shakeup, but not like this.
Illogical MSU fans before Thursday: “No way Dantonio is making staff changes, at least demote Warner and move someone else to OC.”
*Dantonio demotes Warner and moves Brad Salem to OC*
Illogical MSU fans: “Fire Dantonio, this program is a joke now.”
At least stay consistent.

I completely understand Dantonio’s dilemma in firing any of these coaches. They might not be able to find work anywhere else but MSU.

If this doesn’t work Mark Dantonio should be fired

Dantonio is keeping his entire Offensive Staff 😂🤣😂🤣😂
3-9 Here we go again.
How many games will they surpass 94 yards in 2019??

Keep the PR team at MSU football in your thoughts. Gotta be having a rough afternoon.
Michigan just made national news hiring away a top-tier OC candidate from Alabama 15 minutes before Dantonio holds a press conference to defend their decision not to hire a new OC at all.
