Source: Tom Izzo of Michigan State leaning to taking Cleveland Cavaliers job - ESPN Didn't know whether to put this in College Sports or NBA. Either way, it's pretty big news. I always thought Izzo would stay at Michigan State for the rest of his career. And he still might, but I have a feeling he's going to leave if he's putting this much thought into it. He turned the Bulls down right away, so I think if he would do the same for the Cavs if he wasn't going to take the job. Even though Michigan State is a Big Ten rival of Ohio State, I would definitely miss seeing Izzo coaching the Spartans.
