Keith Jackson: 'I Consider Myself Retired'

Legendary sportscaster Keith Jackson is talking retirement again and if he does call it quits, it will be a huge loss to college football fans. Jackson, 77, said he planned to tell executives: "I'm retired. Talk me out of it." Jackson added: "My posture is, I consider myself retired. I can feel the fork. Fifty-three seasons is a long time." He nearly retired in 1998, but was talked out of it by Howard Katz, then the head of ABC Sports. The above image is from ABC media net (registration).
