Retired Michigan State football coach Mark Dantonio is on furlough.

Dantonio, after his Feb. 4 retirement, agreed to a $100,000 annual contract with the athletic department through Feb. 14, 2022. In that role, MSU football’s winningest coach will assist in donor relations and a variety of other projects.

However, Dantonio in late August agreed to indefinitely step aside as the university and athletic department navigate the financial fallout of the coronavirus shutdowns.
