Michigan St. coach Dantonio hospitalized after win
Dantonio is in his fourth season at Michigan State, with a record of 25-17 and three bowl appearances. But the victory on Saturday night might have been his most memorable, because of the opponent and the direct role he played in the outcome.
“Like we said all along, we needed one big momentum play. We just didn’t know when it would come,” Dantonio said after the game. “I don’t really know where to start or end, but it was a big night for the Spartans.”
Treadwell is in his seventh season on the Michigan State staff. He coached receivers from 2000-02 and has been the offensive coordinator since 2007, when Dantonio arrived in East Lansing after a successful three years at Cincinnati.
The Spartans host Northern Colorado on Saturday.
“They’re handling it as well as they can. They love their head coach,” Treadwell said of the team, which learned the news Sunday. “It’s our job as assistant coaches just to keep them moving forward, to keep them focused on task.”
