EAST LANSING, Mich. - Tom Izzo tells The Associated Press he has not been contacted by Oregon, he’s happy at Michigan State and is focused on trying to win another national championship.
Izzo faced questions Monday about the Ducks’ interest in him after KEZI-TV reported that Oregon plans to offer him college basketball’s largest contract with help from Nike co-founder Phil Knight.

Kentucky gave John Calipari a $31.65 million, eight-year contract last year, the largest known deal for a college basketball coach. Private schools, such as Duke, aren’t required by law to reveal what it pays coaches.
Izzo is earning more than $3 million per season at Michigan State and is under contract through 2016.


Looks like the Ducks want to make a splash when their new arena opens.  Think money will talk in this case???  Izzo is God in East Lansing.  What do you think?

I do not see him leaving for Oregon, despite their facilities and Phillip Knight. After another final four birth, Michigan St will renegotiate his contract and he will get a pay raise.
