Irritated Mark Dantonio hangs up on radio interview
Don’t piss off Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio in the morning.
According to MLive.com’s Kyle Austin, Dantonio hung up abruptly on FOX Sports Daybreak hosts Mike North and Andy Furman after the two asked a series of irritating and unrelated questions.
The first was one about Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh getting into Dantonio’s head. The second was about former Spartans QB Connor Cook not being named a captain by his teammates in 2015. Then, they asked if Dantonio eats pasta with Tom Izzo.
Finally, the hosts asked about Michigan State being disrespected nationally and not getting the same buzz as some other Big Ten schools. Dantonio criticized the hosts, saying guys like them are the ones who talk nonsense in the sports world. Shortly after…
“Coach? Coach is gone,” North said. “He hung up.”
Per MLive.com, Dantonio was set to speak to his team and the interview ran long.
