Mark Dantonio makes history with win over Penn State


Michigan State beat Penn State yesterday to clinch the Big Ten East, and coach Mark Dantonio made history in the process. With the win, the longtime Spartans general became the first in Big Ten history to win 11 games or more in five of six seasons.

Dantonio was previously tied with Ohio State’s Jim Tressel and Michigan’s Fielding Yost as the only coaches in the conference to win 11 or more games in four of five campaigns.

Thus continues the success for Dantonio in East Lansing, as he has gone 86-32 (52-20 Big Ten) since joining Michigan State in 2007. He has a bowl record of 4-4 and has two Big Ten titles to his name.

His team now has a date with Iowa in the Big Ten Championship Game and with a win there, Dantonio and the Spartans could be playoff bound.
