Here’s the South Florida Sun Sentinel reporting:
Shane Battier is going back to school. His NBA retirement is now official.
As expected, ESPN confirmed Wednesday that the former Miami Heat forward will be joining the network next season as a college basketball analyst.
Per the network, Battier, “will provide insights and analysis across ESPN’s extensive studio programming and on select games from various top conferences.”
ESPN said Battier’s specific assignments have yet to be determined.
Battier auditioned for ESPN a year ago, when he interviewed players selected at the 2013 NBA Draft.
