Michael Jackson now a Redbird.

Michael Jackson has left the UM for Illinois State. Would have been nice to keep him around, but you can't blame him for wanting to know whether he would be retained by the new coach. Nor can you fault the UM for not committing to his retention without knowing who the next head coach will want to retain. Probably Michigan's best recruiter, Mike Jackson (Michael Jackson as known while point guard at UDM) has great Detroit connections. Good luck to Jackson, and perhaps he will find his way back to A2 in the next couple of years as an assistant. When and if he comes, back, the timing might be right as a replacment for Kruger or Bielein, especially if he's as big as this Michael Jackson!

Good Luck coach Jackson.
