Michigan State assistant coach Dwayne Stephens, who played for the Spartans from 1989 to 1993, has been with the program for 12 years - the last three as an associate head coach. In that time span, MSU has reached the Final Four four times - 2005, 2009, 2010 and 2015. Before returning to his alma mater, he was also an assistant on Marquette's 2003 Final Four team. So in the past 13 years, Stephens has been part of five Final Four squads.
Former Michigan State star Draymond Green, who now plays for the Golden State Warriors, thinks that his former coach deserves more looks at the head coaching position. He took to Twitter on Wednesday to vent his frustration. His math on MSU's Final Four appearances over the past 11 years is a little off, but he gets his point across.

To our knowledge, Stephens hasn't been considered a candidate for any big jobs over the past few years. Perhaps Michigan State's 2015 run will help to change that.
