Spinkle played for MSU from 1995-99 and was an assistant there from 2006-08 (Brad Huse's first 2 years). He's currently an assistant at Cal St. Fullerton and had two prior stints as an assistant at Northridge.
I'm surely getting old. His dad was the AD and football coach at Billings Central when I was there and Danny would give me a hand with the basketball team. He couldn't have been much past 8 years old at that time.
Very proud of him and his accomplishments so far. I will be rooting for him (except when they play PSU of course).
