Michigan makes concussion changes
ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Michigan has announced changes to its injury protocol, admitting a mistake in handling quarterback Shane Morris’ suspected concussion Saturday. The school blamed the problem on a “serious lack of communication” and “confusion” among the coaching staff.
Athletic director Dave Brandon says Michigan plans to have a medical professional in the press box or video booth at future football games.
Coach Brady Hoke has been criticized for not immediately sitting Morris for the rest of the game after he took a hard hit in the fourth quarter against Minnesota.
University President Mark S. Schlissel apologized to Morris, his family and teammates.
