Michigan State football coaches made an interesting video, giving an inside look at what working from home for them looks like during this time.

It’s always nice to know coaches who are making hundreds of thousands of dollars are just like normal, everyday people — especially in a time like this with the COVID-19 outbreak dominating headlines and keeping everyone indoors.

That’s why what Michigan State posted to Twitter on Monday was so good, and relatable.

Everyone seems to be working from home these days and with Michigan passing a new executive order that states all non-essential businesses must shut down for at least three weeks, the remote work will become a widespread practice. That includes the Michigan State football staff, led by Mel Tucker.

The new head coach had his staff show how they were working from home during this social distancing time and it was pretty cool.


It’s been a major adjustment for everyone, including the new staff that’s in East Lansing which hoped to get to work this spring on establishing new schemes on offense and defense while getting to know their new players. Unfortunately, this pandemic has forced everyone to keep their distance and the staff will have some major work to do when this is all over.

For now, they’re all at home, meeting with players on video chat to talk about film and playbooks in lieu of spring practice.

Just like us, these coaches are having to adjust to a new way of life, for the time being, and that includes setting up 3-4 screens to work on recruiting, film and video chats.

It’s nice to know that some of these coaches need to unwind with some video games as well — looking at you, Mike Tressel. We can all relate.
