Report: Mark Dantonio, staff to receive raises at Michigan State


After a successful 2015 season that included an appearance in the College Football Playoff, it appears that Michigan State is set to reward head coach Mark Dantonio and his coaching staff.

According to a report from SpartanNation.com, the university is prepared to offer the entire Spartans coaching staff “significant” raises.

The report states that the hope is the deals will be offered “sooner rather than later”. An actual monetary number wasn’t given by the source to Hondo Carpenter, the reporter who broke the news.

Dantonio, according to USA Today, was the 21st-highest paid coach last season with a salary of $3.6 million. Based on the word significant being thrown around, one has to assume that his raise will put him in the top 15, if not the top 10.

Dantonio has been a successful coach with the Spartans, so it’s not a surprise that a raise is coming his way. That being said, more money is likely going to mean more expectations.

With Michigan State getting to the final four last season, there’s no doubt that school administration as well as fans will expect nothing short of the same in 2016.
