Miami Heat forward Shane Battier has signed a deal with ESPN to become a college basketball analyst for the 2014-15 season, according to The Big Lead’s Jason McIntyre.

Battier confirmed in March that he would be retiring following the Heat’s playoff run.

The length of the contract and Battier’s exact role in ESPN’s NCAA coverage are both still unknown, as he and the network are waiting until after the Finals to announce the deal.
