FOOTBALL

MICHIGAN STATE’S Mark Dantonio plans to coach his team Saturday when the No. 24 Spartans host No. 11 Wisconsin, two weeks after he was hospitalized following a mild heart attack.

Looking upbeat and even wisecracking about eating more vegetables, Dantonio announced his intentions Tuesday after showing up at the team’s weekly news conference.

“I’m going to ease back into this much like anybody would after any injury,” Dantonio said. “I’m going to listen to our doctors, but I am going to ease back into this and do something daily with our football team.”

Dantonio said he expects to be in a coaching box but might venture down to the field.
