ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - Dan Dierdorf is coming back to the booth and will be the radio analyst for University of Michigan football games this fall.
The Pro Football Hall of Famer will work with play-by-play announcer Jim Brandstatter, one of his teammates while playing for the Wolverines.
The announcement Thursday was made by Michigan and IMG College, the school's multimedia rights partner.
Dierdorf said in November he was leaving network broadcasting because the travel was becoming too tough because of his artificial knees and hips and bad back. He was an NFL analyst for CBS Sports last season and spent 12 years on ABC's ''Monday Night Football.''
Brandstatter has been Michigan's radio analyst for football games with play-by-play voice Frank Beckmann, who retired after last season.
