Mark Jackson Rejoining ESPN Broadcast Team


Former Golden State Warriors head coach is headed back to his old job in the broadcast booth. Following two successful seasons with the Warriors, Jackson was fired because of a strained working relationship with management.

The players were all very supportive of Jackson, with team star Stephen Curry voicing support for him before he was fired. Jackson has signed a multi-year deal with ESPN – that will allow him to take a head coaching position if it comes up. Expect to hear Jackson’s trademark, “Mama here comes that man” during the Conference Finals.

Jackson started his broadcasting career with the YES Network.
