U-M equipment manager retiring
ANN ARBOR — Michigan equipment manager Jon Falk is retiring after four decades with the athletic department and football program.
Falk’s retirement is effective at the end of this coming football season. Coach Brady Hoke says Falk is a big part of the program and will be missed.
Falk is responsible for the overall budgeting of the athletic department’s equipment needs with apparel providers, and he oversees a staff of three assistant equipment managers and a large group of student workers.
The Oxford, Ohio, native earned a degree in physical education from Miami University in 1971. He accepted an assistant equipment manager position at Miami before Michigan coach Bo Schembechler offered Falk his current position at Michigan in 1974.
