Michigan inks DC Don Brown to five-year extension


Michigan defensive coordinator Don Brown can cross his employment concerns off his five-year plan. Thanks to success that the Wolverines saw on the defensive side of the ball this season, the university has decided that he is the answer long term for that position.

Michigan’s defense was excellent in its first year under coach Brown. They finished with the No. 2 overall defense in college football and were ranked first on third down.

The success comes with defensive star Jabrill Peppers emerging as a potential Heisman Trophy candidate and playing a multitude of positions. With Peppers still undecided on whether to enter the NFL Draft, replacing him would be the first major hurdle in Brown’s second season as defensive coordinator.

Brown has a track record of success, though, which surely factored into his extension. He led the Boston College defense to the top of eight statistical categories prior to this season and had similar success at Maryland prior to that.

This appears to be a wise decision on Michigan’s part as Brown was likely to become a hot commodity, possibly for the NFL, had they not locked him tip long term.
