The sportscaster who once asked "Do you believe in miracles?" has a book deal.

Al Michaels, the longtime television play-by-play man, is working on a memoir that will be released by HarperCollins imprint William Morrow. The publisher told The Associated Press on Thursday that no title or release date has been set.

Michaels has covered everything from the Super Bowl to the World Series to the NBA finals and his book will include stories about Pete Rose, Phil Jackson and other prominent coaches and athletes.

The 68-year-old Michaels is perhaps best known for the 1980 Winter Olympics and the "Miracle On Ice." As the U.S. hockey team stunned the favored Soviet Union, Michaels exclaimed, "Do you believe in miracles? YES!"
