Tom Izzo is an American college basketball coach.

Since 1995, he has been the head coach for the Michigan State Spartans men's basketball team, presiding over a prolonged period of success.

Under Izzo, the Michigan State program has been one of the most successful in the country.

Izzo has led the Spartans to the 2000 NCAA Division I National Championship, the 2009 NCAA Division I National Championship Game, six Final Fours, and seven Big Ten Championships in his first 17 years at Michigan State.

The coach with the most wins in school history, Izzo's teams have earned invitations to the past 17 consecutive NCAA tournaments, in addition to setting the Big Ten record for the longest home winning streak.

These accomplishments led analyst Andy Katz at ESPN to deem Michigan State the top college basketball program for the decade from 1998 to 2007 Currently the longest tenured coach in the Big Ten Conference, Izzo, whose teams are often recognized for their rebounding prowess and defensive tenacity, has won four national coach of the year awards and maintains a considerable coaching tree—several of his former assistants are currently head coaches at other Division I schools.
