*Fresh from being axed as the Golden State Warriors coach, Mark Jackson is back in the ESPN broadcast booth.

The NBA veteran inked a multi-year deal to return to the network and serve as an NBA game analyst.

Jackson previously served as an ESPN NBA game analyst from 2006 to 2011.

He left to coach the Golden State Warriors, a three-season stint that lasted from 2011 until earlier this month.

Jackson rejoined his former booth-mates, play-by-play commentator Mike Breen and analyst Jeff Van Gundy, during the Eastern Conference Finals, starting with Game One on ABC Sunday.
