Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon to announce his resignation on Friday afternoon.

Dave Brandon is an ex-University of Michigan athletic director, or at least will be shortly. The Detroit Free Press and Detroit television station WXYZ are among the media outlets that have reported the embattled AD will that he will resign at the end of the year during a press conference on Friday afternoon.

Brandon has come under intense criticism this season because of his handling of the Michigan football program. The most notable issue of contention has been the handling of a concussion suffered by Wolverine quarterback Shane Morris during a home loss to Minnesota on Sept. 27.

Members of the University of Michigan student body have expressed displeasure with Brandon over rising prices of student section tickets. Michigan alumni have also chimed in about the state of the Wolverine football program, which has of record of 3-5, and is coming off of a humiliating loss to Michigan State last weekend.
