07:15 AM ET 10.09 | Doug Collins is back -- in broadcasting, that is. For the last three decades, [Collins] has essentially had two careers. So it was inevitable, when Collins left the coaching business in the spring, that he'd be returning to his broadcasting seat in the fall. ESPN made it official Tuesday when it announced that Collins has been signed to a multiyear deal. ... Q: Anytime a coach works in television, you immediately start to wonder how long it'll be before he's back on a bench. So what are the chances we see you taking one more coaching job somewhere? A: No, I'm through coaching. I said it when I went to Philly. That was my last spot. Like I said, it was a circle of life for me. I was at a coaching clinic the other day at Illinois State talking about how difficult coaching has become.

Not at all. Ya know, I've sad for a long time that Doug Collins is too nice a guy to coach. Have you ever listened to his analysis? The guy LOVES EVERYBODY. I mean he just gushes over every player. How are you going to coach when you're like that? He is best broadcasting...and refusing gold medals.

As a lifelong Sixers fan, I love Doug Collins, but I'd rather have him in the booth then coaching. You can see that coaching makes him miserable because he just gets too focused on every second of every game, and it ages him throughout the season. He is one of the best NBA analyst's out there because he is so knowledgable and he's not over the top like most guys at ESPN.

Gotta get me some of that Ricky Williams Brand spinach for the weekend.
