Michigan State informs Mel Tucker it intends to fire him for cause

Sep 18, 2023

Michigan State intends to fire head football coach Mel Tucker for cause.

Tucker was suspended without pay last Sunday after details of an investigation into claims that he sexually harassed a prominent sexual assault awareness activist surfaced. On Monday, MSU athletic director Alan Haller said the school provided Tucker with written notice of intent to terminate his contract.

Multiple outlets reported last Saturday that Tucker allegedly harassed rape survivor and activist Brenda Tracy after she was hired to speak to the team. Tracy operates a nonprofit company that works with college football teams and other organizations to raise awareness about sexual assault and harassment. She was hired by Michigan State “for the sole purpose of providing a sexual misconduct prevention educational program” to the football team, the school said.
