Scottie Hazelton is a name most Michigan State football fans recognize, and not for good reason. He’s grown quite a bad reputation in his tenure at Michigan State, mostly because of how bad his defense was in 2021. While the Mark Dantonio era at MSU will go down as one of the best in school history, the end of that era was not so great. One of the biggest complaints about Dantonio was his reluctance to change up the staff when things got bad. So when Mel Tucker hired Hazelton along with many other new faces, it felt like a breath of fresh air for the program.
