ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) Austin Hatch, who survived two deadly airplane crashes and went on to suit up for Michigan, is giving up playing basketball.

Michigan coach John Beilein announced Monday the Big Ten approved a medical exemption waiver that will allow Hatch keep his scholarship and serve as an undergraduate student assistant.

"Basketball has always been a huge part of my life. However, it is what I play, not who I am," Hatch said. "It was a goal of mine to return to the game that I love so much and I feel very blessed to have the opportunity to play for Michigan. After all that I have been through, it was a dream come true for me to put on a Michigan jersey and get into a game at Crisler Center."
