Athletic director Brandon's contract extended an additional three years

David A. Brandon, the Donald R. Shepherd Director of Intercollegiate Athletics, has had his contract extended through June 30, 2018. The three-year extension was approved July 19 by the Board of Regents.

In his two years as athletic director, Brandon "has been an engaging representative of Michigan athletics and of the University and he has done an outstanding job of leading Michigan's intercollegiate athletics in a highly competitive landscape," President Mary Sue Coleman wrote in material provided to regents.

Coleman said Brandon has a "compelling strategic vision for the development of Michigan athletics and clearly has demonstrated his ability to realize it."
