Dantonio plans to coach Michigan State from press box

Michigan State head football coach Mark Dantonio said Tuesday that he will be coaching from the press box this weekend when his Spartans take on undefeated Wisconsin.

Speaking at his weekly press conference, Dantonio said "it's good to be back" and that his experience watching his team from home last week was "surreal."

Dantonio is still recovering from a mild heart attack he suffered shortly after Michigan State beat Notre Dame in overtime on Sept. 18.

Spartans offensive coordinator Don Treadwell had been taking care of Dantonio's duties in his absence.

Dantonio said the team's success last week against Northern Colorado while he was away "cemented" what he already knew.

"We have a system in place here. The coordinators have been with me for seven years. There's a reason why we do things, and all those things remain the same."

He said he will pay close attention to what his doctors tell him as he eases back into the job. He referred to his status as "day-to-day," in that he's coming back like an injured player and will continue to count on Treadwell, as needed.

"The number one thing is be a good patient. Obviously, there are some restrictions," he said.
When asked if the experience has changed him, he said it might be better to ask people around him. "I guess time will tell," he said. "Hopefully, when you go through something like this, you become wiser," and maybe more compassionate.

Dantonio said he would ease back into his coaching duties, but that he did show up on campus Sunday and Monday so that he was ready for this week's big test against the ninth-ranked Badgers.
