Less than two weeks after being fired as head coach of the Golden State Warriors, Mark Jackson has a new television deal.
ESPN signed Jackson to a multiyear agreement as an NBA TV analyst, the network announced on Saturday.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Mark back to ESPN and for him to reunite with Mike Breen and Jeff Van Gundy – a three-person booth that was very popular and successful for us for several years,” said John Wildhack, ESPN executive vp production and programming, in a statement.
Jackson had been the coach of the San Francisco Bay Area basketball franchise since June 2011 and had previously served as an analyst for ABC and ESPN’s coverage of the NBA. He’ll be seen on the network beginning with the Eastern Conference Finals series, which is set to begin on Sunday.
Meanwhile, the Warriors hired another former television analyst, TNT’s Steve Kerr, to succeed Jackson as head coach.
