Frank Beckmann out as Michigan football radio broadcaster after 2013 season


ANN ARBOR, Mich. — This season will be the last for Michigan football radio broadcaster Frank Beckmann.

Athletic director Dave Brandon released a statement today, thanking Beckmann for more than 30 years of service and praising him for "some of the great calls" in the history of Wolverines football.

Beckmann has called the games since 1981, following another longtime broadcaster, Bob Ufer, who died that year. Beckmann wasn't quoted in the statement announcing his retirement.
