Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio began complaining of disomfort in a leg on Thursday. That's what led to the decision to admit him to a hospital causing the coach to miss today's home game against Wisconsin.
Dantonio has a blood clot in a leg that doctors say is not uncommon following a heart attack. He had planned on coaching the team from the press box.
To be on the safe side, doctors suggested he sit out one more week. The team was not told about Dantonio's absence until after Friday night's meetings shortly before curfew. Previous to telling the entire team, Dantonio had told his coaches, captains and a select number of players on a team leadership council.
The coach could return next week when Michigan State visits Michigan. Dantonio suffered a heart attack two weeks ago following the team's victory over Notre Dame.
