EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Mark Dantonio sees Michigan State as a destination, not a stop or a springboard.

Dantonio brushed off the notion that he could leave for another job. Consistent with the stability he has built for seven seasons, he said Tuesday that he also hopes to keep his coaching staff together. That possibility seems much more likely since defensive coordinator Pat Narduzzi, the 2013 Broyles Award winner as the nation’s top assistant coach, withdrew as a candidate to become the head coach at Connecticut.

The No. 4 Spartans will face No. 5 Stanford in the Rose Bowl on New Year’s Day.
