Gus Johnson, whose frantic play-by-play became a trademark of March Madness, is officially out at CBS and headed to Fox.

"CBS declined to match Fox's offer," an industry source said Monday night. "They let Johnson's people know today."

A CBS source who wanted Johnson - a former Knick radio voice - back said that not only money, but politics was an issue. The source said some of CBS Sports' college hoops voices were not thrilled with Johnson's rise to March Madness' most popular voice.

Johnson now moves to Fox as an NFL and Pac-12 football play-by-play man.
