Mark Jackson already has a new job
Recently fired coach Mark Jackson already has a new gig lined up. The former Golden State Warriors coach has agreed to terms with ESPN on a multi-year deal, and will work the Eastern Conference and NBA Finals with Mike Breen and Jeff Van Gundy. The deal won’t stop him from accepting another head coaching position. The Knicks are said to be interested in Jackson’s services, so this could be a short return to ESPN if Jackson decides he’s ready to jump back into the fire.
