Keith Jackson: 'I'm Retired'

Legendary sportscaster Keith Jackson, 77, said he won't be back in the booth. Jackson retired in 1999, then returned after ABC officials agreed to cut his travel schedule. But Jackson, who has had both knees replaced and last year had surgery to repair a ruptured Achilles' tendon, said his retirement is official. "This time, I know it's the right decision," he said. ABC lost rights to all bowl championship series games except the Rose to Fox, which announced that Thom Brennaman will be the lead announcer for the title game, scheduled to be played Jan. 8, 2007 in Glendale, Ariz.
