The easily excitable (and, in most cases, that's a good thing) Gus Johnson has a new job. He'll handle the play-by-play duties for the newest edition of the Madden video game franchise.
Johnson replaces Tom Hammond. Cris Collinsworth, who succeeded John Madden on NBC's Sunday Night Football, will remain in the game.
Johnson calls NFL and college basketball games for CBS. He previously supplied his pipes for EA Sports' "NCAA Basketball 10."
"Once again, basketball has given me another opportunity," Johnson told Eric Fisher of SportsBusiness Journal. "This one was definitely more extensive, but it was a lot of fun, and presented an opportunity to put my personality into it. I'm very excited."
The game is due to be released August 11.
