Harbaugh on new DC Don Brown: ‘Everything he has touched has turned to gold’

On Sunday, it was reported that the University of Michigan would be hiring Don Brown from Boston College as their next defensive coordinator. Today the hiring was made official and head coach Jim Harbaugh released a statement praising Brown for his past accomplishments.

“We are very pleased and happy to announce that our top candidate and number one choice, Don Brown has accepted our offer to become defensive coordinator,” said Harbaugh. “After a very thorough search and talking with those I respect the most in this game, including Jack Harbaugh, John Harbaugh, Bill Belichick, Bob Sutton, Vic Fangio and others, it led me to Don Brown. Everything he has touched has turned to gold. Just look at his track record as a head coach, defensive coordinator and even as a baseball coach. We are beyond excited to welcome this high character, high achieving individual to our program and university. Teaching and player development are synonymous with coaching and Don Brown epitomizes those qualities.”

 

Brown comes to the Wolverines from a Boston College team that improved defensively each year he was there, including having the top-ranked defense in the nation in 2015. He will replace D.J. Durkin, who served as defensive coordinator for one season under Harbaugh before accepting the head coach position at Maryland.
