Mark Jackson to return to ESPN, will call Game 1 of East finals
After a three-year stint coaching the Warriors, Jackson will be calling games with Mike Breen and Jeff Van Gundy again starting Sunday.
Mark Jackson is returning to ESPN and will be back in the booth on Sunday for the start of the Eastern Conference finals, the network announced on Saturday:
Mama, there goes that man. Mark Jackson will rejoin Mike Breen & Jeff Van Gundy for the rest of the NBA Playoffs. pic.twitter.com/1cziyUAH1i— ESPN (@espn) May 17, 2014
Jackson, who was recently fired as the head coach of the Golden State Warriors, has agreed to a multiyear deal to rejoin Mike Breen and Jeff Van Gundy as a part of the network's lead announcing team, according to the Associated Press.
Van Gundy used Jackson's catchphrase, "Mama, there goes that man," on a recent broadcast. Given that his name has surfaced in coaching rumors, it's somewhat surprising that Jackson himself will be using it again so soon.
