CHICAGO - Mike Hall takes fans inside the life of Michigan State football coach Mark Dantonio on the debut episode of the new BTN series Step Into My Office. The episode airs Friday at approximately 11 p.m., after the network's postgame show that follows the Michigan State-Youngstown State game.
In every episode of Step Into My Office, Hall sits down with a current Big Ten football coach for a revealing, one-on-one conversation. The conference's coaches chat about their lives before they were famous and away from the spotlight. In this episode, Dantonio talks about his famous neighbor, his decidedly unglamorous first job and his favorite East Lansing hangout.
During the course of the 10-episode series, viewers will find out which coach proposed to his wife with his Big Ten Championship ring, which can play the tuba, who was in a coma during childhood and other surprising tidbits. Bonus clips will be posted weekly on www.BTN.com.
Episodes will regularly air at 10 PM ET on Thursday nights this fall.
