On the field Michigan State has to prepare for No. 8 Washington

Posted at 8:41 PM, Sep 11, 2023

(WSYM) — With all that surrounds this Michigan State football team off the field, the Spartans still have a game to play this Saturday against No. 8 Washington. Secondary coach Harlon Barnett is now the acting head coach.

Mark Dantonio is now back with the program as an associate head coach. He will be with the team on gameday, his role is yet to be determined. Dantonio stepped down as the coach back in February of 2020. He is the winningest head coach in MSU history.

"When I called coach Dantonio this (Sunday) morning and his response was Alan whatever you need I'm here to help," Haller said on Sunday at a press conference. "We're still trying to figure out his role but he will be wearing a headset either on the sidelines or in the booth."

Acting head coach Harlon Barnett is expected to meet with the media tomorrow.
