- Mel Tucker denies allegations made against him
- MSU has history of mishandled sexual misconduct cases
Michigan State University has told football coach Mel Tucker that he will be fired without compensation for misconduct involving activist and rape survivor Brenda Tracy.
“I, with the support of the administration and board, have provided Mel Tucker with written notice of intent to terminate his contract for cause,” Michigan State athletic director Alan Haller said. “This notification process is required as part of his existing contract. The notice provides Tucker with seven calendar days to respond and present reasons to me and the interim president as to why he should not be terminated for cause.”
