Former NBC Sports & Olympics chairman Dick Ebersol is returning to the company, just a few months after he resigned his post. The New York TimesBill Carter and Richard Sandomir report that Ebersol will serve as a “senior adviser,” with a special focus on NBC’s NFL and Olympics coverage.

The move was revealed the same day that NBC announced that “Today” EP Jim Bell would also serve as executive producer of the network’s 2012 Olympics coverage.
