6. A birdie just showed up in my P.M. on Facebook. Flew in from Belleville. Seems there are some excited coaches there.

Was still too geeked to sleep after Tillman’s dunk.

Tucker played for Alvarez at Wisconsin 
Was a 2 year GA at MSU for Saban
DB coach for Saban @ L$U
In 2015 he was AHC/DB coach for Saban at ‘Bama 
Was Tressel’s DB coach for 3 seasons and Co-DC for one season before leaving to the NFL

Initially I like the idea he’s worked for Saban at 3 times, has been a DC at the college and NFL level plus he’s recently recruited in SEC country when he was Georgia’s DC/DB coach.

No interim like some doom and gloomers predicted and he knows how big time football organizations work.

I recall there were one or two players from Michigan who are currently at or committed to CU. No idea if they’re Belleville players you’re referring to. Does make me wonder if those guys, whoever they are, might reconsider.

Saw he has some highly ranked kids in the Buffs class from Texas and Louisiana, Cal, among other places. Would be mind blowing to recruit the talent down and out there

Maybe he can bring Alfano, that Bama transfer he brought in with him. Was like a top 10 croot last year

Perhaps Tucker can mute Blackwell’s constant condemnation of MSU that’s he’s been spewing for 2 plus years to Detroit HS coaches.

Definitely worth noting that those years under Tressel as DB coach, was under Dantonio. I believe he became co-DC when Dantonio left for Cincy.

It would seem to me he has five years to prove himself (assuming a five year contract).

Also, I think any realistic person expects us to suck this year.

I like it.

I like his ties to success in the SEC in terms of giving him some street cred with recruits/parents/fans that are impressed by such a thing (I'm not inherently impressed by that but I understand where people would be).

I like his scowl - we need someone with a scowl.

let's face it - I like the fact that MSU is bringing in an African American head coach. I just do.

I like that he has a history of success in the Big Ten as both a player and a coach.. that he went on to have success as a coordinator in the SEC. Not worried about 5-7 in his one and only year at Colorado. Heck, I think/hope if he went 5-7, 6-6 or even 7-5 here this year we would be okay with that given the 'rebuilding' year we're all expecting.

The more I think of Fickell, the more I think "fuck Fickell" - I don't want some wishy-washy guy here. I want someone who wants to be here. Seems like Tucker wants to be here.

Go Green.

Love the hire. From every metric out there the guy can coach. Also, love that our school hired an African American. Clear there is so much bigotry at the pro level with giving African Americans leadership roles. I wish Tucker nothing but success and proud to have him as a coach.

It's a win now. An AD is always judged on the record of coaching hires. So, we'll see.

I don't either, but I saw a couple of other Twitter threads suggesting his name from earlier than the one I posted. Appeared to come from Spartan fans who knew a thing or two about recruiting and suggested it would be great thing.
