Jerry Remy will be back announcing Red Sox games, NESN announced on Thursday.

NESN, which decided to part ways with longtime play-by-play announcer Don Orsillo, had not determined Remy’s status until Thursday. The network announced that Remy will return for his 29th season as the color analyst, working alongside new play-by-play announcer Dave O’Brien.

Remy will not work all the games. NESN announced that Dennis Eckersley and Steve Lyons will work as analysts “for a significant number of games.” The network will occasionally use a three-man announcing team with O’Brien and different combinations of Remy, Eckersley and Lyons.

O’Brien, nationally known for his work with ESPN, had been a Red Sox radio announcer for the past nine years.
