Apparently he fired assistants whilst ignoring human resource procedures within the company. Somebody told me this was imminent a few weeks back.

Steve Kerr and Fred Hoiberg are also rumored as potential candidates for the coaching position.

I don't know how good of a coach Jackson actually was. I heard he was basically just a motivational speaker lol but then again I don't know much about the Warriors

ive heard nothing but bad things about Jackson...a control freak of sorts. Comes off as a nice guy, but seems a bit different within his coaching circle. Hoepfully he'll learn his lesson.

I had heard nothing but good things from his players and they all seem to love him... what was I missing.

Golden State is at the very top of the curve of variance and should fall right back to being one of the worst franchises in all of sports soon enough.

Blog from the Bay area.

Quote:
But I’ve often wondered how comfortable it was for Jackson and team president Rick Welts to co-exist in the same organization. Welts is openly gay, becoming the first high-ranking executive in professional sports to come out back in 2011. He’s a strong, professional leader who is excellent at his job. Jackson is a fundamental Christian, who embraces what some call “traditional values”. And he wasn’t shy about letting people know his views.

When Jason Collins made his historic pronouncement last year that he was gay, Jackson’s immediate response came out sounding less-than-supportive.

“I will say this,” Jackson said the day of the news. “We live in a country that allows you to be whoever you want to be. As a Christian man, I serve a God that gives you free will to be who you want to be. As a Christian man, I have beliefs of what’s right and what’s wrong. That being said, I know Jason Collins, I know his family, and am certainly praying for them at this time.”

What’s right and what’s wrong? Praying for someone who decided to live an honest life? His words created a very strange vibe, especially for a Bay Area team in the 21st century.

After Jackson was hired, the embarrassing story came out that he had been extorted by a stripper a few years back, who allegedly had nude pictures of Jackson. In another embarrassment, an associate of his church who had attended his hiring press conference was arrested on drug trafficking charges. Those issues led to charges of hypocrisy by a man who thumped the bible as often as possible.
