When Michigan State Head Coach Tom Izzo took over the head coaching position for Jud Heathcote in 1995, his team took the floor wearing jerseys made by Reebok that featured the Michigan State Arch Logo where the word “Michigan” spans over the large and tall word “State.”
After winning the National Championship in 2000, Michigan State switched to basketball jerseys made by Nike. The new jerseys featured a new State Script Logo, modernized from the 1979 Original State Script Logo. Over the next 11 seasons, the jerseys have changed styles several more times.
Michigan State Head Coach Tom Izzo’s current record at Michigan State is 383 – 161, with a National Championship in 2000, six Final Fours, six Big Ten Championships, two Big Ten Tournament Championships and fourteen straight trips to the NCAA tournament. Michigan State Head Coach Tom Izzo was voted National Coach of the Year in 1998 and Big Ten Coach of the Year in 1998 & 2009.
