Source tells FootballScoop that Mel Tucker is planning to bring Chris Kapilovic to East Lansing.
Kapilovic joined Tucker’s staff as offensive line coach / run game coordinator at Colorado back in December of 2018.
Coach Kap previously spent ten seasons on staff with Larry Fedora at Southern Miss and UNC before joining Tucker’s staff with the Buffs. At UNC, Kapilovic also served as associate head coach and also had the offensive coordinator title.
Source tells us that Kap had opportunities at Auburn and Missouri the past few months, and opted to stay with Tucker in Boulder. Now he’s heading to join Tucker at Michigan State.
