Here is the latest Michigan sports news from The Associated Press
EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan State basketball coach Tom Izzo has promoted Doug Wojcik to assistant coach to replace Dane Fife and hired three former Spartans Monday. Fife left the program in April to be the associate head coach at Indiana under Mike Woodson. Wojcik returned to Michigan State in 2018 to be Izzo’s recruiting coordinator after a run as an assistant coach for the Spartans led to him being the head coach at Tulsa and College of Charleston. Mark Montgomery was hired as recruiting coordinator. Austin Thornton is the team’s video coordinator and Matt McQuaid is its director of basketball operations.
UNDATED (AP) — Helio Castroneves is trying to get back into the IndyCar Series fulltime. He hoped his fourth win in the Indianapolis 500 would lead to more races. But it didn’t payoff with a ride this weekend at the doubleheader at Detroit. Castroneves will instead debut Saturday night in Tony Stewart’s All-Star Superstar Racing Experience in Connecticut as previously scheduled. He still has five more IndyCar races on his calendar for Michael Shank Racing this season but the team did not expand those plans following his surprise victory.
