Great read! “And presents what I believe is the solution:
This is my article on Michigan State's nasty, adaptable defense that Rece Davis just mentioned:
MSU Super DC Pat Narduzzi looking good on the cover of this month's Spartan Nation Magazine:
More common than you'd think. Pat Narduzzi started as a WR coach. Urban Meyer went from WR to LB to QB coach.
Fresh off a Rose Bowl victory and No. 3 final national ranking, Michigan State Spartans head coach Mark Dantonio and his assistants are getting a healthy pay raise. The school announced Tuesday evening that Dantonio will now earn $3.64 million annually, and a year has been added to his contract to make it a six-year rollover deal. The eighth-year Spartans boss had been making about $1.9 million per year; this new contract ranks fifth in the Big Ten behind Ohio State's Urban Meyer, Iowa's Kirk Ferentz, Michigan's Brady Hoke and new Penn State coach James Franklin. Michigan State also allocated an additional $785,000 to the assistant coaches' salary pool. The biggest beneficiary of that was Defensive Coordinator Pat Narduzzi, who saw his pay increase to $904,583, nearly doubling his previous salary. That makes him now the highest-paid assistant coach in the Big Ten. Dantonio is 64-29 with the Spartans and was the Big Ten coach of the year in 2013. The Spartans are 42-12 since 2010 and won their first Rose B ...
MSU's Pat Narduzzi stayed and made a commitment for 1 more year to MSU...MSU is ranked 3 to 5th in polls and analysts all predict MSU to be a national championship contender 5. Michigan State Spartans The Spartans look like the team to beat in the Big Ten this coming season, after finishing 13-1 and defeating Stanford 24-20 in the Rose Bowl Game presented by VIZIO. Michigan State didn't lose any underclassmen to the NFL draft and somehow managed to keep Defensive Coordinator Pat Narduzzi for at least one more season. But MSU will have to replace a lot of very productive players from its stingy defense, including All-American cornerback Darqueze Dennard, linebackers Max Bullough and Denicos Allen, and tackles Tyler Hoover and Micajah Reynolds. MSU's offense should be much improved with quarterback Connor Cook and tailback Jeremy Langford coming back. Cook threw for 2,755 yards with 22 touchdowns this past season, while Langford ran for 1,422 yards with 18 touchdowns.

Bobby Petrino, Chad Morris, and Pat Narduzzi are reportedly the three finalists at Louisville.
Kid Scoop Reporter Jared Bosarge reporting from the Rose Bowl - 12/29/13: Today was Media Day with all players and coaches for both Rose Bowl teams. The players wore their jerseys to make it easier for the media to identify them. I spent the first part of the morning speaking with Michigan State Spartans and then met with Stanford Cardinals. Defensive Coordinator-Pat Narduzzi, Quarterback- Connor Cook, and Runningback Jeremy Langford all spoke with me. I then met with the Stanford players and was able to talk to Linebacker-Shayne Skov, Linebacker-Trent Murphy, and Wide Receiver- Kodi Whitfield. After some detective work, I discovered there were pranksters on both teams. They are Defensive Linemen - James Kittredge for Michigan State, and Runningback - Anthony Wilkerson for Stanford. They both specialize in impersonating the coaches. When I asked some of the key players where and how they got started playing football, Cardinal Linebacker, Skov, said that he got started when he was 12 in Guadalajara ...
James Franklin, Chad Morris might be my top picks. Pete Lembo, Mark Hudspeth, Kirby Smart, Pat Narduzzi?
Mark Dantonio has agreed to a new contract with Michigan State that will make him one of the three highest-paid coaches in the Big Ten and place his assistants among the three highest-paid staffs in the conference, a source told ESPN's Joe Schad. Dantonio's salary had been in the bottom third of the conference. The No. 4 Spartans (12-1) play No. 5 Stanford (12-1) in the Rose Bowl on New Year's Day, Michigan State's first appearance in the game in 26 seasons. The 57-year-old Dantonio is 63-29 with Michigan State in seven seasons. And consistent with the stability he has built for the program, Dantonio wanted to keep his entire staff together. Pat Narduzzi, the 2013 Broyles Award winner as the nation's top assistant coach, withdrew as a head-coaching candidate at Connecticut to remain in East Lansing. He is often credited with helping the Spartans rank among the nation's top five defenses for three straight years. They are ranked No. 1 overall this season.
Never said I didn't like Mark Dantonio but Pat Narduzzi is the brains on MSU's staff and he's stupid if he don't call Penn State or Texas about their head coach vacancies. Would make a good head coach... Plus he make more $ at those two jobs than DC at MSU.
Pat Narduzzi was summoning Christopher Lloyd, Tony Danza, and Danny Glover with that defensive call.
Here are my top 5 college defensive minds (current coaches): Gary Patterson, Nick Saban, Pat Narduzzi, Derek Mason, and Scott Shafer.
My Top 10 Candidates for Detroit Lions Head Coaching Position: Assuming Tony Dungy and John Gruden refuse to come out of retirement, Bill O’brien goes to Houston, and Pat Narduzzi & Urban Meyer don’t want to team up to create a dream team that not only ensures dominance in the NFC North, but also Big 10 titles for the University of Michigan, the following list contains my prospective hopes and “hopes-nots.” Top Ten Hopes 1) Lovie Smith No one in the world wants to beat the Bears and the Packers more than Lovie Smith, and no one knows how to do just that better than Lovie Smith. With a coaching mentor of Tony Dungy, his only knock is that he was influenced offensively by Mike Martz. With the proper OC, he is a perfect fit in Detroit. 2) Ken Wisenhunt Ken took a horrible Arizona franchise to 8-8 in his first year, and then 9-7 and 10-6 the next two years. His downside was the loss of Kurt Warner after a Super Bowl run. His offensive prowess could once again flourish with Matt Stafford and Megatro .. ...
Bill O'brien to leave Penn State for Texas?? Pat Narduzzi to Penn State?? Tony Dungy to the Lions?? Lovie Smith to the Lions? I don't care who coaches them next year as long as it isn't Schwartz and I hope we draft a qb this yr because when you an elite qb as stafford and his only fan his girlfriend thinks he is, why are you a lower rated passer than Brandon Weeden! Stafford is another Joey Harrington a huge bust and the lions should move on

INDIANAPOLIS — With everything on the line — dreams of roses and championships and California and history — Denicos Allen did exactly what Michigan State does best. He went after the quarterback. The senior linebacker shed a block, tracked Braxton Miller down the line of scrimmage, dove at his feet and tackled the Ohio State star to the ground. Drive over. Game over. The Spartan Dawgs are heading to Pasadena. Tenth-ranked MSU came up with its biggest play in its biggest moment by one of its own big stars in the 34-24 victory over the No. 2 Buckeyes by staying true to what Defensive Coordinator Pat Narduzzi preaches. Attack in a stealthy fashion. On about 30 percent of the Buckeyes’ 63 plays for the game. In the fourth quarter, the Spartans were at their best. They held Ohio State to just 25 yards in the final period and none through the air. The Buckeyes had 349 total yards through three quarters.

Whatever it takes, we must keep Pat Narduzzi in our Spartan family! I remember where I was the last time we were Rose Bowl bound. Thank you Bruce Skarnulis! I watched the game at Great Wolf Lodge in with my Spartan friend since 1983, Kevin Zezula.
Too bad FOX didn't think to interview Pat Narduzzi after the game. After having the Defense in the nation and having his defense come up with some HUGE stops tonight to help save the game, the Spartan Defensive Coordinator and assistant head coach deserved his proper recognition as one of the best defensive coaches in the Country. We alumni owe you a lot for this team getting to the Rose Bowl. Thanks Pat.

Dear Green Bay Packers GET PAT NARDUZZI AFTER THIS SEASON! *** it I want that man with the Packers!
If Pat Narduzzi is still the D Coordinator for MSU next year, it will be an MSU Christmas miracle. The Spartan Defense could dominate both the OSU and MSU offenses at the same time, no problem.
Pat Narduzzi is the best Defensive Coordinator in the game, hands down!
Our defense has talent but pat narduzzi is a beast as a Defensive Coordinator
If Pat Narduzzi's nation-best Michigan State defense stifles Michigan on Saturday, the Spartans are that much closer to a championship, and he is that much closer to an offer worth taking.
The Buckeyes are up against the defense in the country. Michigan State has two of the nations top coaches (both Ohio born coaches) Mark Dantonio from Zanesville, and Pat Narduzzi of Youngstown. I really like these two coaches, but in case you were wondering, Go Bucks!

Hows bout dem Wolerinees ? New head coach, Pat Narduzzi ? They suck worse than many Lions teams of the past.
Victory for MSU! The Spartans (7-1, 4-0) roll in this one by the score of 42-3. A school record for passing efficiency was broken today as Connor Cook went 15-16 for 208yds and 3TDs. This has to be great to see for Spartan fans as Cook struggled with accuracy last week vs. Purdue. The defense continued its dominating season, surrendering only 3 points on the afternoon. Pat Narduzzi's group has only allowed three points in the last 8 quarters of play. With the offense coming together over the past three weeks and the defense playing out of its mind, Mark Dantonio now turns his attention to their next opponent: Michigan Stay locked in to BBMP this week for continuing coverage of EVERYONE's favorite time of the college season: Michigan State/Michigan week. With Nebraska losing today, the Spartans have a chance to take a stranglehold on the division if they can beat the Wolverines. What are your thoughts leading into this week's game? Will the MSU offense continue to trend upward? How will Michigan look ...
So Coach D. says his quarterback shouldn't question his confidence after Dantonio yanked him with 2 minutes left and the game on the line. ("We trusted him with the first 58 minutes," he said.) I wonder how the coach would feel if Mark Hollis benched him with 2 minutes left and let Pat Narduzzi call the shots for the rest of the game. Would he feel like MSU had his back because he got to coach the first 58 minutes?
the Pat Narduzzi part of this MSU team has yet to be questioned. Dantonio's part? Nothing but ?'s
