Legendary and engaging sports commentator who became famous for his work with the Big Ten Network after calling thrilling NCAA tournament games.
He did the play-by-play for the Minnesota Timberwolves before he worked a long stint with CBS calling March Madness games.
He overplayed his hand thinking CBS would give him a big raise; they didn't, and he ended up taking a lower-visibility job with Fox Sports.
He was born Augustus Cornelius Johnson, Jr. after his father.
One of the most famous games he called involved UCLA coming back to beat Gonzaga and Adam Morrison in the NCAA tournament.
