Legendary Sports broadcaster Keith Jackson has died. He was 89-years-old.

He died on Friday night surrounded by friends and family. Jackson was a broadcaster for 50-years.

This is the second legendary sports broadcaster, who has died in the past few weeks. Before Christmas, Dick Enberg died in his home near San Diego, California.

He had a catch phrase of “Whoa, Nellie!” He covered nearly everything in his career. Yet, his more signature assignments was college football.

Jackson also was a member of the first Monday Night Football broadcast team.

He is mostly remembered for his college football coverage. His final game called was the 2006 Rose Bowl when the Texas Longhorns defeated the USC Trojans in one of the most historic games of all-time.

More to come.
