Doris Burke has become one of the smartest, most-beloved analysts in basketball. Thankfully for everyone watching, she's not going anywhere.

ESPN announced this morning that it has agreed to a longterm contract extension with Burke, who's been with the network since her playing career ended in 1991.

The extension is a multi-year one that will allow her to continue to serve as a full-time game . analyst and reporter for the conference and NBA finals.

Burke is thrilled to be remaining with the network.

“It is hard to put into words how grateful I am to continue my career with ESPN,” Burke said. “I’ve loved basketball my entire life and to be able to cover this sport is a privilege that I don’t take for granted. My love for the game, and for my colleagues, both in front of the camera and behind-the-scenes, make this job such a rewarding experience every day.”

ESPN is pretty happy, too.

“Doris is exceptional at what she does. Her ability, knowledge, passion and versatility are virtually unmatched and it’s evident every time she calls a game,” said Connor Schell, ESPN’s executive vice president of content. “She is dedicated to documenting the sport for the fans in the most prepared and informed manner possible. Our NBA coverage is better because of Doris and we’re thrilled that she’ll be with us for a long time to come.”

Congrats to Doris and ESPN.
