Desmond Howard On New Michigan AD Warde Manuel: "I Can't Think Of Anyone More Suited For This Job"

A Michigan Man will be leading the Wolverines' athletic department, as UM tabbed alumnus Warde Manuel to take over as athletic director earlier today. Manuel, who comes to Michigan from UConn, has one great former Michigan football player on his side: Desmond Howard. The ESPN college football analyst tweeted out his thoughts about the hiring this afternoon.

Manuel played under Bo Schembechler at Michigan from 1986-89, and has a pretty solid track record from his time at UConn and Buffalo. We expect many Michigan fans will like this hire.
