Broadcaster Gus Johnson has officially left CBS Sports and will begin working for FOX this fall. The (New York) Daily News reported that CBS declined to match the contract offer of the competing network.

Johnson, who called NFL and college basketball games for CBS, will join Charles Davis as Fox Sports' lead college football broadcast team. He will also call select NFL games on FOX following the college football season.

"It's a bigger stage for me now, having the opportunity to be a lead play-by-play guy," Johnson said.

Fox Sports executive producer Eric Shanks said that Johnson could call NFL games between college conference championship games and the Cotton Bowl and then "after for whatever opportunities we can put together."

Johnson is also the voice of the "Madden" video game, alongside Cris Collinsworth.
