Mark Jackson Returning to ESPN

Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- A constant name in the NBA coaching rumor mill, Mark Jackson has landed a new gig. The former Golden State Warrior head man will be returning to his old post as part of ESPN's NBA coverage.

Jackson reached a multiyear deal on Saturday to return to a place he spent five years. The 17-time All-Star will be reunited with former broadcast partners Mike Breen and Jeff Van Gundy beginning on Sunday when the trio calls Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals between Indiana and Miami.

After being fired by Golden State earlier this month, Jackson was rumored to be a candidate for the vacant New York Knicks position. Jackson was 121-109 in three season with the Warriors and led the team to a 51-31 mark this year, the best since the 1991-92 campaign.

Golden State was bounced in the first round of the playoffs by the Los Angeles Clippers. The Warriors hired Steve Kerr as head coach on May 14.
