The Michigan State athletic program received an endowment of $3 million from boosters, part of which will go to DC Pat Narduzzi in an effort to keep the coach.
Narduzzi's name had been floated around as a potential future hire at head coach for vacant programs. In August, Fox Sports' Bruce Feldman called Narduzzi the "top candidate" to move from defensive coordinator to head coach after the 2014 season. This appears less likely now that a bunch of money has come in. In an article posted on the school's website, it was announced that "The $3 million gift is being directed toward the endowment of the defensive coordinator position" as well as the school's basketball program. Michigan State's defense has consistently been a Top-10 unit under Narduzzi's watch. Nov 6 - 7:26 PM

Fox Sports' Bruce Feldman believes Michigan State's Pat Narduzzi is the top candidate to turn a DC job into a HC gig.

Feldman calls Narduzzi the "best defensive coordinator in college football," citing the Spartans' D being the conference's top unit the past three years. "Last December, he turned down a shot to be the head coach at UConn, but he figures to have some even bigger opportunities this winter," Feldman writes. "He's also proven to be one of the best recruiters in the Big Ten." Narduzzi has pumped a number of prospects into the NFL over the last few years. He has never been a head coach at the college level.

Michigan State defensive coordinator Pat Narduzzi has declined an offer to become UConn's head coach, according to Football Scoop.

Narduzzi has turned the Spartans' defense into one of the top unit's in the country. Ball State's Pete Lembo might be next on the list, but it is obvious that Narduzzi was UConn's first choice.
