Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon says he's looking forward to meeting and talking with Chris Webber, Maurice Taylor and Louis Bullock.

No one, though, is sure when or if those face-to-face or telephone conversations will happen.

On Wednesday, the school and the former basketball players can renew ties if they choose.

The NCAA forced Michigan to dissociate from Webber, Taylor, Bullock and the late Robert Traylor for a decade — until May 8, 2013 — because a federal investigation revealed now-deceased booster Ed Martin gave them more than $600,000 when they were student athletes.

Messages seeking comment have been left for Webber, Taylor and Bullock by The Associated Press. Traylor died in 2011.
