March 28 (Bloomberg) -- Former New York Mets manager Bobby Valentine will join SNY, the official television home of the team, as part of the network’s broadcast crew for pre- and post-game coverage for 12 to 15 games this season.

Valentine, 62, will team with host Chris Carlin and former Mets pitcher and lead studio analyst Bob Ojeda, beginning with Opening Day on April 1 against the San Diego Padres.

“As a former Mets Manager, Bobby brings an insightful and contemporary perspective to our studio coverage,” SNY executive producer Curt Gowdy, Jr. said in a statement.

Valentine, who managed the Mets from 1996 to 2002, was fired after one season by the Boston Red Sox in October after leading the team to its worst record since 1965.

Valentine last month was hired as athletic director at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, Connecticut, and also serves as a radio analyst with NBC Sports.

He also managed the Texas Rangers and in Japan and was a television analyst for ESPN.
