ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) Two people familiar with the situation say Warde Manuel has agreed to be Michigan's next athletic director.

Both spoke to The Associated Press on Wednesday night on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to share details about the search.

Two high ranking Connecticut officials told The AP earlier in the day that the school's athletic director, Manuel, had been offered the same job at his alma mater. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because Michigan has made no official announcements about the opening.

UConn President Susan Herbst confirmed that Manuel is a finalist for the job at Michigan, adding that she expects an announcement is coming from that school in the next couple days.
