Tommy Heinsohn will head back to Springfield, Massachusetts this year when he is inducted into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame as a coach.

It will be the second time the Celtics legend has been enshrined into the Hall. Heinsohn was first elected in 1986, as a player. Tommy joins John Wooden, Lenny Wilkins and Celtics great Bill Sharman as the only fourth person be inducted into the Hall as a player and a coach.

Heinsohn coached the Celtics from 1969-78, won championships in 1974 against the Milwaukee Bucks and in 1976 over the Phoenix Suns in six playoff appearances.

Heinsohn is the only person who can say he's been a part of all 17 Celtics championships as a player, coach and as a broadcaster.

Congrats, Tommy!

The entire class of 2015 will be announced April 6. The induction ceremony will take place on September 11.
