The Cleveland Cavaliers have offered a job to a homeless Ohio man with the "voice from God."

 

Ted Williams has become an Internet sensation after the Columbus Dispatch found him living alongside a highway and posted a video of him. Williams used to be a radio announcer whose career was derailed by drugs and alcohol. He said he's been sober for two years now.

The tough times fortunately did not affect his golden voice, and now the Cavs want him to bring that voice to the team. Spokesman Tad Carper says details are being worked out on the possible position. It could include Williams working in Quicken Loans Arena.

This judge looked an inmate square in the eyes and did something that left the entire courtroom in tears:

The Cavs are not the only ones calling about Williams's availability. The Dispatch says it has fielded numerous inquiries from various media entities, radio stations and talent agencies.

"My boss said to me: 'If you don't get him hired, you're fired,' " Kevin McLoughlin, director of post-production films for the NFL, told the Dispatch Tuesday night. "I can't make any guarantees, but I'd love to get him some work."

Williams appeared on the CBS "Early Show" Wednesday morning, getting emotional at times:
