Mel Tucker leaves Colorado for Michigan State

Well this is awkward.

While I am flattered to be considered for the HC job @MSU_football, I am committed to @CUBuffsFootball for #TheBuild of our program, its great athletes, coaches & supporters. #UnfinishedBusiness #GoBuffs

We are #Relentless #Culture #TheBuild— Mel Tucker (@Coach_mtucker) February 8, 2020
