EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) – Tom Izzo is staying at Michigan State, turning down a chance to coach the Cleveland Cavaliers and perhaps LeBron James.(WATCH THE PRESS CONFERENCE LIVE >>)

“I knew at the beginning that whatever decision I made would be a decision for life,” Izzo said during a news conference on campus.

“I am going to be a lifer. This is what I’m going to be, and I’m damn proud of it.”

For the past nine days, Izzo has been trying to decide whether to leave the place that has been his home since 1983 and jump to the NBA to perhaps make $6 million — doubling his salary — and possibly coaching one of the best basketball players in the world.

“Just as I decided to stay home, I hope a 6-8, 270-pound forward in Cleveland decides to stay home,” Izzo said in a statement released by the school.

He admitted the idea of coaching the 25-year-old superstar was very tempting.

“I thought playing one-on-one with LeBron James every day would be a good thing,” Izzo said. He admitted turning down the Cavs was a difficult decision.

“How many more offers do you get? How many more opportunities?” Izzo said. “People asked ‘why would you want to leave?’ I didn’t. I didn’t want to leave.”

James’ uncertain future will make for a difficult decision for any prospective Cavs coach. The 25-year-old superstar is unlikely to tip his hand publicly before free agency begins July 1.

Izzo’s decision ends a nearly two-week courtship by Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert, who was hoping a reported five-year $30 million contract would be enough to land the Spartans coach, and perhaps show James he intends to remake the Cavs following a bitter postseason loss.

“The entire Cleveland Cavalier organization has nothing but respect and admiration for Coach Izzo and his family,” Gilbert said in a statement. “Tom is a special person in so many unique and positive ways. We only wish great things for him and his family in all the years ahead.”

Izzo did not look at ease as he walked into Tuesday night’s news conference along with his wife, Lupe, Michigan State president Lou Anna Simon and athletic director Mark Hollis.

He kept his head down when Simon made her opening remarks, sipping water, tapping his feet and fidgeting with his fingers and rubbing his hands.

This past season, Izzo led the Spartans to the Final Four for the sixth time in 12 years. Only the late John Wooden at UCLA and Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski also have done that.

“It’s a great day, knowing he’s coming back,” said Mateen Cleaves, perhaps Izzo’s favorite player and one of the stars from his 2000 national championship team. “It put the biggest smile on my face to know he’s coming back.”

Milwaukee Bucks guard Charlie Bell, who played on the 2000 national championship team, was also glad to hear Izzo’s staying: “Izzo is Michigan State basketball.”

Two of the five former assistants who are Division I coaches were thrilled, too.

“Thought he handled very difficult process very well,” Utah coach Jim Boylen wrote in a text message. “It was a win-win situation for him. Happy for him, his family and his team that it’s over.”

South Florida coach Stan Heath sent a text that read: “Tom is great for Michigan State and for college basketball.”

For the NBA franchise in Cleveland, Izzo’s decision appears to be another setback.

Izzo’s snub has further tangled a tricky summer for the Cavaliers, who are weeks away from knowing if James will be back with them.

Since losing to Boston in the second round of the playoffs, Gilbert fired Mike Brown, the most successful coach in team history; general manager Danny Ferry left after deciding not to renew his contract following five banner years; and now Izzo, a friend of Gilbert’s, doesn’t want to be in the Cavs’ future.

James’ decision hangs over all of it. Without knowing if he’ll return, the Cavs’ pursuit of a coach has been nearly impossible. They can’t promise candidates that No. 23 — soon to be No. 6 — will be around to make another run at a title.

The Cavs were adamant that James would not be consulted during their coaching search. Even if a coach had talked to the two-time MVP, he wasn’t going to reveal his plans before hitting the free-agent market with an All-Star class that includes fellow Olympians Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.

Cleveland’s next option appears to be Byron Scott, who spent an hour on the phone last week with Cavs GM Chris Grant and assistant Lance Blanks. Scott may not be a slam-dunk backup plan for the Cavs because the former New Jersey and New Orleans coach would be interested in the Los Angeles job if Phil Jackson retires.

Scott won three titles playing for the Lakers and has dreamed of coaching in L.A. He had an “out clause” built into his contract with the Nets so he could pursue the Lakers’ job if it ever opened. He also loves the West Coast after being fired by the Hornets and might seriously listen to the Clippers if they’re interested in him.

The Cavs also have contacted Milwaukee assistant Kelvin Sampson and former Atlanta coach and Cavs assistant Mike Woodson. The

team could bring one of both of them in for interviews, but may wait until after they have a better sense of James’ next off-the-floor move.

Gilbert knew finding Brown’s replacement would be difficult. He said it would be ideal to have a coach in place by July 1, but that may be unrealistic. The draft is next week, and although the Cavs don’t currently have a pick, they’ve been shopping around to obtain one.

They’ve also talked to several teams about possible trades, hoping to upgrade their roster and make it more appealing to James.

Brown was fired after five seasons for failing to win a championship. His successor will be hard pressed to match Brown’s success over a five-year span, when the Cavs went to the finals, won two division titles and had the league’s best regular-season record the past two seasons.

DETROIT — Wayne County Circuit Court Judge David Groner has denied the State Department’s request to allow Kwame Kilpatrick to participate in a special boot camp program.Download: Groner Denies Kilpatrick Boot Camp If the former mayor participated in the Special Alternative Incarceration Boot Camp Program (SAI), he could have been eligible to get out of prison after 90 days.Last week, the Michigan Department of Corrections notified Groner that Kilpatrick, who is serving a 14-month to five-year prison sentence for probation violation, was eligible for the voluntary 90-day special boot camp program.Watch: Kilpatrick To Be Eligible For Early Release
Watch: Prosecutor Says ‘No’ To Kilpatrick Boot Camp Kilpatrick is imprisoned at the Oaks Correctional Facility in Manistee, about 200 miles northwest of Detroit. The boot camp is held at a facility in Chelsea, about 47 miles west of Detroit.The boot camp is usually in a halfway house environment and involves a highly disciplined regimen that includes military-style exercise and work assignments.MDOC spokesman Russ Marlan said the boot camp is reserved for non-violent offenders and is typically for younger inmates because of the rigorous physical activities.Kilpatrick, a former college football player at Florida A&M, and who has in recent years complained of a bad knee, would have been one of the oldest prisoners there.Groner said that based on the camp’s description, it “is best suited for and was designed with the intent of positively intervening in the lives of youthful offenders.”Groner went on to say that Kilpatrick’s sentence was carefully crafted to suit the offense.Groner sentenced Kilpatrick May 25 to up to five years in prison for violating probation in two 2008 criminal cases stemming from lies Kilpatrick told under oath during a 2007 whistleblowers’ lawsuit trial.He served 99 days in county jail and was ordered to repay Detroit $1 million in restitution. He wound up behind bars again last month after Groner determined he failed to adequately report his assets and turn over certain financial records.Groner ruled he could be released after a minimum of 14 months.Marlan has said successful boot camp completion would bring automatic parole.Last week, Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy sent Groner a letter recommending he remain in prison.”The efforts by the Michigan Department of Corrections to place Mr. Kilpatrick in the SAI program would circumvent the court’s order. If the court wanted to sentence him to 90 days, it could have,” said Worthy in the letter.Worthy Responds To Kilpatrick Boot CampGroner returned Worthy’s letter with one of his own, stating the court will not respond to letters involving legal matters that are pending. He also sent a copy of Worthy’s letter and his response to Kilpatrick’s new attorney, Arnold Reed.

Kanye West protégé Kid Cudi was arrested on Friday (June 11) in New York and charged with felony criminal mischief and possession of a controlled substance after authorities were called to respond to a disturbance involving the rapper and an unidentified woman.

A spokesman for the New York Police Department confirmed to MTV News that Cudi was arrested in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood on Friday. The spokesman, however, declined to provide additional information regarding the controlled substance found on the rapper.

At press time, Cudi was still awaiting arraignment by a judge and bail had yet to be set, police said. A request for comment made to the rapper’s management was not returned.

This is not the first time the upstart artist has had a run-in with the law. Late last year, the Cleveland native was arrested by cops in Los Angeles after a magazine shoot when residents complained about looters in the area. Cudi was held at gunpoint by police, who pressed the rapper and his entourage down to the ground in an effort to secure the premises.

The “Day ‘N’ Nite” star was later released in a case of mistaken identity. Just one month prior to the L.A. incident, Kid Cudi escaped being charged with a crime when a fan the rapper punched at a concert declined to press charges. The concert was in Vancouver and Cudi grew upset after a wallet was thrown in his direction onstage. Cudi caught the wallet and tossed the item back into the crowd. The young man, Michael Sharpe, caught the wallet then threw it back to the stage since it didn’t belong to him. The rapper became agitated, perceiving Sharpe’s act as a dis and began to pummel the fan. Sharpe, though, insisted it was a mistake and told TMZ he would not pursue any legal action against the rapper.

I’m not upset,” Sharpe explained. “I’m not going to be that person. I just want to meet him and be like, ‘I’m the guy you punched.’ I’m not going to press charges.”
