A Michigan football fanbase hungry for improvement was fed some promise of change Wednesday.

Don Brown, the Wolverines defensive coordinator the past five seasons, was fired. Reaction was swift and diverse.

One notable tweet came from prized linebacker recruit Junior Colson

Some fans and onlookers felt the time had come while others think it was a move to help ensure Jim Harbaugh signs an extension. Harbaugh is entering the final year of his contract after a 2-4 season.

More from Twitter:

Good isn't good enough if it doesn't beat Ohio State.

Several people tweeted something similar.
