Fans have mixed reaction to Michigan dismissing Don Brown

The first major change to the coaching staff of Michigan Wolverines head coach Jim Harbaugh was announced earlier this afternoon, as maligned defensive coordinator Don Brown was given his pink slip after five years on the job in Ann Arbor.

And while Brown earned the wrath of the fan base over the years following several disappointing losses, not everyone is categorizing today's news as an early Christmas gift.

While some fans are happy with the change in direction, several others are disappointed that Harbaugh isn't departing with Brown.
