Tom Anastos is indeed out after an underwhelming stint at his Alma Mater. Although officially he stepped down, I have a feeling that Anastos was given that opportunity thanks to his loyalty to the school and the program. Regardless of his track record behind the bench, he is a Spartan through and through. Michigan State will join Nebraska-Omaha, Northern Michigan, and Niagra on the coaching search (so far). It’s not completely unreasonable to assume that State could compete with any of those programs for top-candidates.
