Over a month after Don Treadwell left Michigan State for the head-coaching job at Miami (OH), Mark Dantonio has finally filled the hole at offensive coordinator.
And, as is ofttimes the case, the Spartans head coach didn’t have to look very far for a replacement.
In a press release issued by the school, MSU announced that Dan Roushar has been promoted to coordinator. Roushar has spent the past four years as the Spartans’ offensive line coach.
In addition to his coordinator duties, Roushar will also coach tight ends.
“First off, I want to congratulate Don Treadwell again for getting the job at Miami University and thank him for all his hard work and commitment to Michigan State University throughout the past four years,” Dantonio said. “Due to his departure, we have had to reorganize our offensive staff and have decided to promote from within. We have outstanding offensive coaches and all of them in their own right were considered as possible coordinators. I’m pleased to announce that Dan Roushar will be promoted to offensive coordinator.
“As Dan steps into the coordinator’s role, he underscores the importance of staff continuity and stability to our players, as we continue to build on the foundation that has been established. We are excited about the future of Michigan State Football.”
It was also announced that Mark Staten will take over as offensive line coach and running backs coach Brad Salem will now also serve as the program’s recruiting coordinator.
Dantonio still has a hole at wide receivers coach to fill.
