    CLEVELAND -- Former Cleveland Cavaliers coach Mike Brown has been hired by ESPN as an analyst.



    Brown

    Brown, who was fired in June after the Cavs lost to Boston in the Eastern Conference semifinals, will begin his TV stint on Christmas Day for the New York-Chicago telecast on ESPN 3D, the network said Thursday. Brown will also contribute as an ESPN studio analyst throughout the season.

    Brown was the most successful coach in Cavs history. He went 314-177 in five seasons and was the league's coach of the year in 2009. But Cleveland's failure to win a title despite having the league's best record and LeBron James the past two seasons led to Brown's dismissal.

    Brown would like to return to coaching one day. He helped coach one of his son's football teams this fall and has been enjoying more time with his family since being fired.

    Hopefully he stays there long enough for Bird/Morway/Herb to call him up in the summer time.

    Brown is a very legit NBA coach. He should have no problem finding another job when one opens up. I would LOVE to see him on the Indiana bench again, only this time holding the reins.

    This should help me determine whether or not I would want Brown here next season. Right now, I'm on the fence.

    Quite offtopic, but was Bill Simmons' appearance as a commentator during the Heat game a singular thing or does he appear on a regular base?

    I wouldn't put much weight from how a guy sounds on TV into judging how good of a coach he'll be.

    Remember why the Detroit Lions hired Matt Millen to be their GM? Because he took a TV announcing job and everyone thought he sounded very smart and articulate on air. Everyone thought what he said made good sense. So the Lions hired him for that very reason, despite Millen having never previously worked in an NFL front office in any capacity.

    Now Brown obviously has NBA coaching experience, so I'd judge him by that body of work.
