Tom Izzo has decided to remain at Michigan State rather than jump to the NBA to coach the Cleveland Cavaliers.
“I knew at the beginning that whatever decision I made would be a decision for life,” Izzo said during a news conference on campus.
“I am going to be a lifer. This is what I’m going to be, and I’m damn proud of it.”
