Tommy prefers Lions to Packers

August 8, 2012 - Burt Angeli
The Green Bay Packers have lost Iron Mountain’s Tom Izzo to the Detroit Lions.

Izzo, visiting the Detroit Lions camp, indicated how football has played a role in his basketball coaching career.

“Over the years, football’s been a big part of my development, I think,” Michigan State’s basketball coach told the Detroit Free Press. “I was around so many great football guys, including when I was born — it was Vince Lombardi and the Green Bay Packers where I’m from.

“So I’ve had to change allegiance now since I’ve come down here. But I’m excited about these guys and the opportunity I think they have this year.”
