Michigan State has extended Coach Tom Izzo’s contract for the next five seasons and will make $5.92 million per year with a five-year rollover making him a Spartan for life.
Since 1995, Izzo and the Spartans have made the NCAA tournament in all but two seasons as head coach. Izzo has coached in eight Final Fours, won the 1999-2000 National Championship, coached seven consensus All-Americans, won three Big 10 Coach of the Year awards, was the 1997-98 AP Coach of the Year and has won 666 games in his career.
The contract extension also comes after Izzo signed one of his best-recruiting classes in recent memory, signing four top 100 players in the class of 2023, which ranks No. 3 overall in the nation. Izzo also signed two incoming freshmen who were top 100 prospects, Jaxon Kohler and Tre Holloman, that will suit up for Michigan State.
Izzo is the winningest coach in Big 10 history, passing Bob Knight’s 659 wins at Indiana. Based on his recent recruiting work, Izzo is gearing up for one more NCAA Championship run before he decides to step away from the sidelines.
