Life has changed for Mel Tucker over the last week — and not in a good way.

The Michigan State head coach had a security presence this week during his weekly radio show. Woodward Sports Network’s Owen Oszust shared the news over Twitter Thursday.

There apparently was some concern over Tucker’s safety given the events of last weekend.

Eight Michigan State players were suspended indefinitely this week for their roles in beating up two Michigan players in the tunnel after last week’s game between the schools. Ja’Den McBurrows was seen being beat up in one video. A second video showed Gemon Green being beat up by a Spartans player swinging a helmet.

Perhaps Michigan State was concerned about some retaliation and wanted Tucker to be protected.

The Spartans are 3-5 this season, which is Tucker’s third on the job. Last season, the team went 11-2.
