ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) – Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon says the school has discussed the possibility of a mascot for the Wolverines, but that it’s “not an active project.”
There was a bit of a stir when Brandon was quoted in the online magazine Michigan Today saying the university is “interested in doing a mascot but it has to be something that fans love.”
Brandon tells The Associated Press that a mascot is something Michigan has discussed because the school wants to connect with younger fans. However, he says there’s “no timetable” and no current project to come up with one.
