Former U-M police chief Ken Magee adds sports memorabilia to magic shop business
Former University of Michigan Police Chief Ken Magee has expanded his downtown Ann Arbor retail endeavor to include a sports memorabilia shop, according to an interview Friday on the ‘Lucy Ann Lance Business Insider’ on 1290 WLBY-AM.
Magee was born and raised in Ann Arbor and said U-M football has always been a passion.
“I decided to take this hobby of mine that I have and turn it into a business,” Magee said in the interview.
The store carries collectibles such as old coffee mugs, autographed books, buttons, pins, ticket stubs and programs.
Magee agreed to resign from his post as U-M police chief earlier this year after a prolonged period of sick leave. Critics accused him of violating U-M's sick leave policy by starting the magic shop.
Magee, who had a 33-year career in law enforcement, said he still hasn’t “closed the door totally” on the field, but for now, he’s moved on to run his retail business.
