Michigan State fans – you can breathe a sigh of relief. Well, as least for now. Head basketball coach Tom Izzo joined Dan Patrick this morning and made it clear that he has not been contacted by anyone with the Detroit Pistons and reiterated that he has “no interest” in leaving the Spartans for the NBA. He also poked a bit of fun at Wolverines fans, joking that they were probably behind all of the rumors.
If you listen all the way through, things get a little bizarre when Izzo asks Patrick about his sex life. Patrick’s “I’m a 1-seed, I heard you’re a play-in game” response is fantastic.
Michigan State faces off against 1-seed UVA Friday night at Madison Square Garden. Would another national championship maybe change his mind?
