Michigan State head football coach Mark Dantonio announced on Thursday a restructuring of his staff for the 2019 season.

Brad Salem, who is entering his 10th season under Dantonio at MSU, has been promoted to offensive coordinator for the Spartans. Salem spent his first three seasons in East Lansing as the running backs coach and has been the quarterbacks coach the last six years. A former Division II head coach at Augustana (S.D.) for five seasons from 2005-09, Salem will also return to coaching the running backs, where he previously mentored All-Big Ten players Le'Veon Bell and Edwin Baker.
