Mark Dantonio is leaving the University of Cincinnati to become the new football coach at Michigan State.
M-S-U trustees unanimously approved a recommendation to hire Dantonio this morning. The five-year contract guarantees him about $1.1 million dollars a year and includes a $200 thousand signing bonus and incentives.
Michigan State first interviewed Dantonio on Saturday night, followed up by a second interview with university president Lou Anna Simon yesterday morning.
Dantonio was an assistant at MSU under Nick Saban.
Cleveland Browns defensive coordinator Todd Grantham, L-S-U defensive coordinator Bo Pelini, Central Michigan coach Brian Kelly, Philadelphia Eagles assistant Pat Shurmur and Miami Dolphins assistant Charlie Baggett also were candidates for the opening.
