A DAY AFTER Lloyd Carr retired as associate athletic director, Michigan announced that director of football operations Brad Labadie has stepped down.
Wolverines athletic director Dave Brandon says Labadie's decision was family-related and not related to an ongoing NCAA investigation.
Labadie was one of seven people reprimanded by the school for having a role in what the NCAA has called "major" violations. A hearing is planned for Aug. 13.
In other Michigan news, officials announced that the refurnished Big House will once again have the largest capacity (109,901) in the country. Until they get some stability in that program - and maybe beat Ohio State once in a while - wonder how many of those 109,901 seats might actually have fannies in them?
