Mel Tucker Biography

Mel Tucker has an extensive resume coaching football on the pro and collegiate levels. He is best known for his four-year run as the head coach at Michigan State from 2020-23. In 2021, the Spartans went 11-2 and finished ranked in the top ten in the country. 


Tucker was hired at MSU after spending one season at the University of Colorado in 2019 and posting a 5-7 record. Tucker has spent over two decades as an assistant on the pro and college levels before that appointment. 


For three years, Tucker was the defensive coordinator at Georgia, helping Kirby Smart make the Bulldogs program nationally elite. He had worked with Smart at Alabama under his old coaching mentor Nick Saban in 2015. 


Before re-entering the college game, Tucker was in the NFL for a decade, primarily as a defensive coordinator with the Cleveland Browns, Jacksonville Jaguars and Chicago Bears. He even had a five-game run as interim head coach of the Jaguars in 2011, posting a 2-3 record. 


Tucker's coaching roots, however, are in college football. Saban gave him his first job as a graduate assistant at Michigan State in 1997. He also coached at Miami (OH), LSU and Ohio State.
