Longtime ESPN "SportsCenter" anchor Stuart Scott has died after a long battle with cancer.

FOX News Radio's Pat O'Neill has more:

He was known for catchphrases like "call him butter" ... "he's on a roll"... and, saying a play or player was "as cool as the other side of the pillow."

Scott was diagnosed with cancer in 2007, after he had to leave a "Monday Night Football" game to have his appendix removed. He kept working even as he underwent treatment.

At the 2014 ESPY awards, Scott was presented with the Jimmy V Award for Perseverance...

(Scott) "When you die, it does not mean that you lose to cancer. You beat cancer by how you live, why you live and in the manner in which you live." 

Scott joined ESPN in 1993. He was 49.
