As Michigan Football continues to get the program back to where it used to be, it has reportedly brought back one of its fixtures from the last four decades.
Long-time equipment manager Jon Falk has been hired back to work with Jim Harbaugh and the Wolverines, according to John. U Bacon.

Falk has continued to be visible with the program since his resignation and is very close with Harbaugh. He was brought in by Bo Schembechler after the two had previously worked together at Miami (OH). His original stint as equipment manager lasted for 41 years.
He recently spoke about his relationship with the program at a U-M Alumni Club meeting late last year. (h/t 247 Sports)
