Billy Packer Out At CBS

Billy Packer is out after 27 years as the lead college basketball analyst for CBS. He's being replaced by Clark Kellogg, who has done game and studio analysis for the network for 16 years. He'll partner with Jim Nantz on his first Final Four in April.

Kellogg says he's "excited, humbled and quite pleased" at the opportunity.

Packer confirmed the move Sunday, through a CBS official, to The Miami Herald, which first reported the story.

The 68-year-old Packer played college basketball at Wake Forest and now lives in Charlotte. He is pursuing other basketball projects and declined further comment.
