EAST LANSING, Mich. — Michigan State University trustees have approved contract extensions through 2016 for men’s basketball coach Tom Izzo, football coach Mark Dantonio and athletics director Mark Hollis.

The trustees on Friday approved a three-year extension for Hollis, who has served as AD since 2007, and one-year extensions for Izzo and Dantonio. Izzo has coached the Spartans since 1995 and Dantonio is in his third season in East Lansing.

A statement issued by the university did not disclose contract terms.

Trustees also approved contract extensions for hockey coach Rick Comley through 2013 and women’s basketball coach Suzy Merchant through 2014.

University President Lou Anna K. Simon says the contract extensions will provide stability and continuity.
