The Michigan sports community has suffered a loss.

Don Chiodo, a radio broadcaster for Central Michigan football and basketball, has died after a car crash at the age of 54. His passing took place a few days before CMU plays for the Mid-American Conference football championship.

According to police, Chiodo apparently crossed the center line and struck a tractor-trailer on on M-46 in Gratiot County.

“I am truly devastated,” Michael Alford, CMU athletic director, said in a statement on Thursday. “Don was an important part of our athletics family and his passing is a great loss. Don was one of the fiercest advocates for all our programs and had a passion for telling the great stories of our student-athletes.”

Said CMU football coach Jim McElwain: “Today we lost a true CMU Chippewa, someone who cared deeply about our program. Working with Don was a real pleasure as it was clear he had a passion for CMU and our success. We will all rally around his family through this tragedy and ensure they know how much Don meant to this program and university.”
