It is no secret that many want Mel Tucker to be the next head coach at LSU. He was an assistant at LSU under Nick Saban in 2000. He re-joined Saban’s staff at Alabama, before taking the defensive coordinator job at Georgia under Kirby Smart.
Since that time, Tucker had a short stint with Colorado and is now in his second year at Michigan State. His name popped up as a potential candidate when Fox Sports analyst Bruce Feldman stated that many influential people in Baton Rouge want him.
The last time that LSU hired a former Michigan State Spartans head coach it worked out pretty well. Following the huge win for the second-straight season against their biggest rivals, many congratulated the future LSU head coach.
