Michigan State Fires Football Coach Mel Tucker for Bringing Ridicule to the School

From an AP story by Larry Lage headlined “Michigan State fires coach Mel Tucker for bringing ridicule to school, breaching his contract.”:

Michigan State fired Mel Tucker, saying the suspended football coach failed to present adequate reasons why he should not be fired for cause after having what he described as consensual phone sex with an activist and rape survivor.

The school said it terminated what’s left of Tucker’s $95 million, 10-year contract for acknowledging actions that subjected the institution to ridicule, breaching his contract and moral turpitude.
