Michigan State’s Tom Izzo and Mark Dantonio were voted the nation’s number 1 coaching combo in a recent poll; up from #7 last year. Yes, in the two college sports that people care about, you can’t find a better one-two punch then H to tha Izzo and MD. However, there was once a time in Spartan lore when both Tom Izzo and Nick Saban were coaching in East Lansing, Michigan.
The overlap period was 1995-1999, and you’d be hard pressed to find a better pair in modern college sports history than Izzo and Saban. The two remain close friends today.Follow paulmbanks
