Why Michigan football four-star commit was blindsided by Don Brown firing: 'Not pleased'
At least one Michigan soccer player was surprised by the report of Defense Coordinator Don Brown's sacking.
Four-star linebacker Junior Colson, who signed a letter of intent with the Wolverines at the start of early contract signing last Wednesday, told the Free Press on Tuesday that he was surprised by Brown's dismissal.
"I wasn't happy with the news about (Michigan) Fire (Brown)," Colson said. "I didn't know about it, but I've already signed so I can't do anything."

When asked if he had any plans to enroll early or if he would ask for his letter of intent to be released, Colson said, "I don't know yet."
Colson, # 95 overall on 247Sports' composite rankings, was the fifth highest signer in Michigan's 2021 class and one of five top 100 recruits signed by the Wolverines in the early signing phase last week. One of the positions Colson was recruited into was the "Viper" - the signature linebacker position in Brown's defense system.
