ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN SEPTEMBER 29, 2003 has learned (via telephone source) this morning that Jim Cnockaert, University of Michigan football beat writer for the Ann Arbor News, has been fired. He was let go sometime between the Notre Dame and Oregon games. He covered the ND game for the News but did not cover the loss to Oregon. There has been no mention of the firing in the News or on WTKA 1050AM, where Cnockaert appeared today as he does each Monday as a “Michigan football insider”. Developing.

Update 12/01/03: I haven’t heard anything else about this since I posted this. Have you? I hear Jim on 1050 WTKA but I still have nothing.
