University of Michigan works to have radio deal in place before football season
CHICAGO — The University of Michigan is without a radio contract with little more than a month remaining before the start of football season.
School spokesman Dave Ablauf confirmed Thursday at the Big Ten media days the athletic department is working on a new deal after its five-year contract with CBS Radio was allowed to expire.
Further details — including possible suitors — were not available because of the ongoing negotiations.
Ablauf said he expects a new deal to be reached within a week.
Michigan signed its deal with CBS in 2006. The Wolverines open the season Sept. 3 with a 3:30 p.m. home game against Western Michigan.
