Dave Brandon Resigns As University Of Michigan Athletic Director

He has held the position since 2010.

Posted on

On Tuesday, a user on a Michigan fan blog posted a photo of an email Brandon had sent to a Michigan alum who had written an email critical of the quality of his work as Athletic Director.

In September, Brandon was widely criticized for his handling of quarterback Shane Morris after he was concussed in a game against Minnesota.

After the injury, Morris was not properly examined for head trauma and was allowed to remain on the field during a 30-14 loss to Minnesota.

Brandon has lost support within Michigan's Board of Regents, who are now in favor of his firing.
