Hackett says there will be more night football at Big House

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) Jim Hackett says there will be more night football at Michigan Stadium next season, and the Wolverines' interim athletic director says he's enjoyed working with new coach Jim Harbaugh since hiring him about a month ago.

Hackett was at Michigan's basketball game at Michigan State on Sunday, and he said an announcement of at least one night football game will come soon. Hackett has not said publicly exactly how long he wants to stay on as the athletic director, but he says his wife has encouraged him to stay ''a little longer'' if he wants to.

Hackett took over at the start of November after Dave Brandon resigned. He hired Harbaugh in late December.
