Crazy. The Golden State Warriors have fired Mark Jackson.
Mark Jackson was a very motivational head coach for the team.
Stephen Curry can’t be too pleased with this… especially since the other day he just sent a clear message to co-owner Joe Lacob and team management, saying players want Mark Jackson back as coach.
The Golden State Warriors have fired Mark Jackson, ending the franchise’s most successful coaching tenure in the past two decades but also one filled with drama and distractions.
General manager Bob Myers thanked Jackson in a statement Tuesday for “his role in helping elevate this team into a better position than it was when he arrived nearly 36 months ago.” Myers says it was a difficult decision but the Warriors “simply feel it’s best to move in a different direction at this time.”
Jackson’s three seasons with the Warriors will be remembered for the way he helped turn a perennially losing franchise into a consistent winner and the bold and bombastic way in which he did it.
