Marv Albert is in discussions with CBS to join the network and call the NFL and college basketball. He would essentially replace Gus Johnson who departed to Fox to cover college football and the NFL.
Gus Johnson talked about his tough decision to leave CBS, and the impact his departure has had on his life.
