(WXYZ) -- Quarterback Dan LeFevour, who gained national prominence playing college football at Central Michigan, has announced his retirement from pro football.
LeFevour made the announcement on Twitter Saturday night.
I want to give a big thank you to everyone who has supported me in the pursuit of chasing my childhood dream! It's been a heck of a ride. But there is a time and a place for everything. It's time for my family and I to move on to the next chapter
