  Bob Cousy won't be back on Comcast SportsNet's Boston Celtics telecasts 
this season, thus ending Cousy's 34 years of involvement in Celtics TV 
broadcasts. For the past 9 years Cousy had only be working ten games a 
season as part of a "consultant contract" with the team. The Worcester 
Telegram reports that Cousy was informed of his dismissal via a phone call 
from a low level Comcast SportsNet executive.

 The article also reports that Tom Heinsohn will only be working home games 
this season to avoid extended time away from his ill wife.
