Blood Clot In Leg Will Prevent Mark Dantonio From Coaching Today's MSU Game From Press Box

It was originally believed that Mark Dantonio would be coaching today’s game from the booth, but there has been a change of plans

Mark Dantonio won’t be in Spartan Stadium after all. Blood clot found in leg Thursday. MSU says it’s not alarmed, but he’ll be at home.

Dantonio was actually admitted to Sparrow Hospital on Thursday after a routine check-up revealed the blood clot. Blood clots are not uncommon after a cardiac catheterization procedure and, according to, his “prognosis is excellent.” 

Dantonio is still at Sparrow Hospital and his release date has not been determined.
