Initially reported by Sports Illustrated, various reports have confirmed over the past few hours that Boston College’s Don Brown has been named the University of Michigan football team’s defensive coordinator.
Brown leaves Chestnut Hill after three seasons with the Eagles as the defensive coordinator. This past fall, Boston College finished first nationally in total defense this past season, allowing 254 yards per game, while ranking fourth in scoring defense, yielding an average of 15.3 points per game.
D.J. Durkin, who was the Wolverines’ defensive coordinator this past fall, left the Ann Arbor campus to become the University of Maryland’s head coach.
