After a near 50-year career in broadcasting, Brent Musburger will be retiring following the January 31 encounter between the Georgia Bulldogs and Kentucky Wildcats in Lexington, Kentucky.

ESPN announced the news on Wednesday that Musburger, who has called damn near every event there is to call, will be calling it a career next week. Musburger has been working under the ABC/ESPN umbrella since 1990, this after a lengthy career with CBS Sports, where his contemporary Verne Lundquist similarly stepped down at the conclusion of this past year’s college football season.

Best of luck in Vegas, Brent.
