Beckmann Leaving Michigan Football

Frank Beckmann is stepping down after 33 years of calling Michigan football on radio after this coming season. Beckmann, 63, says it is his call and he wants to do other things in the fall. He still will host his morning show on WJR radio in Detroit. Beckmann replaced Bob Ufer, who died after the 1980 season. Michigan released the news Friday morning.
