Former Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson is back at ESPN as an NBA analyst after agreeing to a multiyear deal with the network.

Jackson will work Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals between the Miami Heat and Indiana Pacers on Sunday, according to ESPN.

Jackson reunites with play-by-play commentator Mike Breen and fellow analyst Jeff Van Gundy. That trio broadcasted the NBA Finals for five straight years up to 2011.

Jackson spent the past three seasons coaching the Warriors, who fired him despite winning 51 games this season and guiding the team to the playoffs in consecutive years. Jackson went 121-109 with Golden State.

Before his first stint with ESPN, Jackson spent 17 seasons as an NBA point guard.
