Mark Dantonio looking to follow Jim Harbaugh’s out-of-state practice path?

Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh has certainly changed the game of college football for the Wolverines in the last year he has been there. From holding spring practices out of state to hosting a giant party featuring Ric Flair and Tom Brady to watch National Signing Day, it has been a wild and crazy ride.

Harbaugh is expected to take his team to IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida for spring practices in just a few weeks, despite major pushback from the SEC. It looks like a Big Ten rival coach could be following his lead as Michigan State head coach Mark Dantonio teased doing just that in the future.

Dantonio just now here in Grand Rapids asked about moving spring practice (Like Michigan) out of state, "We're thinking about it nowdays!"

Dantonio mentioned, "Florida or Texas" as possible places MSU could go out of state someday for spring practice.

This certainly seems like a good idea for the Spartans because I am sure many of the recruits would love to get out of East Lansing for a little while during spring training camps. It helped Harbaugh land the number one recruit in the nation for the class of 2016, so why wouldn’t the Spartans benefit from it?
