Tom Izzo Blasts ESPN's Dan Dakich For What He Tweeted

Michigan State's head coach doesn't appear to be a fan of ESPN's Dan Dakich.

Tom Izzo blasted ESPN college basketball analyst Dan Dakich following Michigan State's win over Ohio State in East Lansing, Mich. tonight.

The Spartans' head coach was upset with Dakich's tweets about the Spartans and his program. It's unclear right now what exact tweets Izzo was talking about, but the ESPN analyst has been critical, often calling the program out for "whining."

Izzo went off in his post-game press conference, first mentioning the fact that he was OK with his student section taunting Dakich throughout the game and later saying he's not sure why ESPN would let someone like him work for them.

Izzo says Dakich owes his fans and players an apology.

Here's video of Izzo's comments on Dakich, which were made at the beginning of his press conference tonight. He also taunted Dakich during his interview mid-game.

Dakich has yet to respond on Twitter, but something is likely coming.
