Photo: Michigan State Assistant Coach Pokes Fun At Younger, Mustache Wearing Tom Izzo

Tom Izzo speaking at the podium for Michigan State.

Tom Izzo is one of the most respected coaches in college basketball. He's been the head man at Michigan State since 1995, and since then, he's won a national championship, appeared in six Final Fours, made eight Elite Eights, and won seven Big Ten championships. 

Before Izzo was the head coach of the Spartans, he was an assistant under Jud Heathcote. During some of those years from 1983-95, Izzo sported an Uncle Rico-style look. One of Izzo's current assistant coaches, Dane Fife, found a picture of the mustache wearing 59-year-old coach.

Rule No. 1 of the workplace is don't make fun of your boss. Fife has already violated that rule.
