Former Michigan AD New Toys R Us CEO
Former University of Michigan Athletic Director David Brandon has a new job. According to freep.com, Brandon has accepted a role as CEO of Toys 'R' Us. Prior to his days at Michigan, Brandon was CEO at Domino's Pizza, and will apparently remain chairman of the Domino's board.
Brandon resigned his post at Michigan last fall. Despite turning the financial aspect of of U-M's Athletic Department, he succumbed to pressure from fans and alumni alike as the Wolverines Football program didn't perform to "Michigan Standards". He agreed to a $3 Million buyout, spread out over four years when he resigned. The university may get off the hook for the remaining payments because of Brandon's new position.
