Michigan athletic director Bill Martin, hockey coach Red Berenson and retired football coach Lloyd Carr share another bond beyond the Maize and Blue that runs in their veins. All three have been diagnosed with melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer.All three have been diagnosed with melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, the Free Press reporting partners at WDIV-TV Local 4 reported Friday night.
