It was a silent transition compared to most this offseason, as both universities kept things under wrap till late last night when the first presser was held on the Michigan State campus. There were mixed feelings in the air as UTEP had to deal with the departure of their long standing coach, and the Michigan State faithful had to welcome a new coach that showed a low level of consistency at his last school but was able to make 2 bowl games in the last 4 years, both wins. "I'm excited. They love their football up here in Big 10 country and its gonna be a little different from UTEP thats for sure. I can't wait to get into the swing of things here at Michigan State and I plan to be here for the long run."
