    MSU announced on Friday Feb 19 that Mark Dantonio will be getting a raise form $3.67 million to $4.3 million per year. Plus, another $250,000 total pool increase for the assistants.

    Michigan State's Mark Dantonio signs new contract worth $4.3 million per year

    BUT...

    ...keep in mind that Dantonio does NOT have an agent... so he gets to keep a larger percentage of money than his peers.

    A very smart move. Not that I would expect him to leave for another job, but Dantonio deserves a ton of credit for the job he's done building MSU into a consistent power. I went digging around through coaching history and he's got the 2nd best winning percentage of any coach at MSU, and the best for anyone with more than 34 games coached.
