Gus Johnson, a veteran TV broadcaster whose distinctively exuberant style became synonymous with the NCAA men's basketball tournament, left his longtime perch at CBS in 2011 for Fox Sports. He's spent the last 18 months studying for his new assignment covering—of all things—international soccer.
As part of Johnson's new gig, he'll be calling the knockout rounds of the annual Champions League competition for European club teams. Johnson has little previous experience calling soccer. Frankly, we didn't even know he liked soccer. So we thought we'd try to help.
