Shortly after accepting the head coach position at Michigan State, Jonathan Smith posted the following statement on social media.

“As I start this next chapter of my coaching career, I want to first thank all the players, coaches, and colleagues I have worked with the last 6 years. I will cherish the memories and the friendships. I also want to express my deepest gratitude to the people of OSU/Corvallis for your support. When I first arrived as a freshman college student, I had no idea the opportunities and relationships this community would provide for me and my family. The collective impact you have made makes it impossible for me to thank everyone individually, but I am forever grateful.”

Smith leaves Oregon State after six seasons and replaces Mel Tucker at Michigan State in the Big Ten.
