Dick Enberg dies

A Michigan native and hall of fame sports broadcast has passed away.

According to ESPN, Dick Enberg's family got worried when he didn't arrive on his flight from Boston Thursday and he was later found dead in his San Diego home.

It's not clear how Enberg died, but it is believed he had a heart attack. Enberg worked for NBC, CBS and ESPN throughout his career. He covered 28 Wimbledons, 10 Super Bowls, and eight NCAA men's basketball title games, including the battle between Michigan State and Indiana State in 1979 when Magic Johnson and Larry Bird squared off.

Enberg graduated from Central Michigan University in 1957 before getting his master's and doctorate degrees from Indiana University.

He was 82 years old.
