According to numerous sources, the Cleveland Cavaliers have formally offered their head coaching position to Michigan State head coach Tom Izzo.
This announcement comes on the heels of the Cavaliers dismissing head coach Mike Brown and the resignation of general manager Danny Ferry.
According to an Associated Press report, Michigan State athletic director Mark Hollis has confirmed that the Cavaliers are interested in Izzo, but they have not made him an official offer yet.
This could be a tremendous opportunity for Izzo. Financially, he could probably double his current salary of $3 million per season. He would also be in a position to potentially coach LeBron James, one of the best players in the NBA today.
However, no matter what the financial incentives are, Izzo should remain the Spartan head coach. He has built a great tradition in East Lansing, and he has said himself that he wants to win at least one more national championship.
