The Michigan State football program suffered through a 2016 campaign that fell far short of expectations, but don’t expect any major shakeups to the coaching staff.
Michigan State finished the year with a 3-9 record, but head coach Mark Dantonio said he will not make any changes.
During his end-of-year press conference, Dantonio announced that no staff changes will be made and that no one will have their responsibilities taken away.

Dantonio, who has been coaching Michigan State for the past decade, is confident that he will be able to turn the program around.
Dantonio says he's taken the approach that "I'm a new coach coming in this year & I'm going to fix the things the guy did last year."

Spartans fans may want some changes on the staff, especially when it comes to play-calling, but if Dantonio is confident moving forward then it looks like everyone in East Lansing will have to accept that.
It is also an all-in move for Dantonio.
If he makes no changes and Michigan State once again sputters in 2017, everyone could then be calling for his head instead of the coordinators.
