According to a report by Brett McMurphy of ESPN.com, University of Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon is set to resign the job Friday afternoon.
Which, based on the hate and vitriol spewing from Ann Arbor these days--is likely the cause for celebration.
Brandon has taken a lot of heat for the abysmal performance of the football team and some off...and on the field issues surrounding it.
Among them: Coach Brady Hoke's poor handling of the concussion suffered by QB Shane Morris during a game. Hoke allowed Morris to go back in despot Morris's wooziness and wobbling. That began a vigorous campaign and rally by students on campus to have Brandon fired.
Brandon has also gotten heat for getting testy with alumni and others who have criticized him or the team via e-mail and social media.
And his poor idea of giving away student tickets to anyone who bought two 20oz Coke's for the Minnesota game. Yeah, that didn't go so well either.
Michigan per the Detroit News is holding a 1:30pm
press conference to make an "Announcement". The general consensus is that it will be to announce Dave Brandon's fate.
