Harbaugh: Dantonio has done 'one of the best coaching jobs ever'

  Michigan and Michigan State will square off in a rivalry game this weekend.

There is no love lost between Michigan and Michigan State, but the two programs respect one another. Wolverines head coach Jim Harbaugh took that sentiment to another level Monday afternoon.

Asked about Dantonio’s coaching performance during Michigan State’s down season, Harbaugh offered supreme praise for his counterpart.

After the Spartans shocked the Wolverines in Ann Arbor last season, Harbaugh is probably right to laud Michigan State. And despite MSU’s rough campaign, Dantonio has done admirable work in East Lansing. Since taking over as head coach in 2007, the Spartans have won 11 or more games five times.

Michigan and Michigan State will square off this Saturday afternoon at noon ET.
