Dan Dierdorf To Call Michigan Football Games


Dan Dierdorf will come out of his retirement and broadcast the football games for the University of Michigan, according to the Mark Snyder of the Detroit Free Press.

When Michigan announced last summer that Frank Beckmann would retire from doing radio play-by-play for football games, most thoughts about successors were conventional.

But as with many decisions by U-M athletic department, today’s announcement was anything but. Longtime color analyst Jim Brandstatter will move into the play-by-play chair, and Dan Dierdorf will sit in Brandstatter’s former seat.
