My opion the PACERS need some new blood on the coaching staff. Iwould like to see MARK JACKSON given a shot.http://www.pacersdigest.com/forums/images/icons/icon14.gif If he could transfer his leadership that he had on the floor to coaching he could be a big help. What a better person to work with the point guards. (he could end up making a good head coach sometime);). Has he ever said if he did not want anything to do with coaching??

The same Mark Jackson who said that Dirk will be better than Bird, Kobe is better than MJ, Grant Hill was better than Dr. J, and Avery Johnson is a better coach than Pat Riley?

If that's the Mark Jackson you're talking about, he's on the record that an assistant job is beneath him.

I can't disagree that we could use some new blood in coaching but I don't know that Mark Jackson is the guy.

I know it's kind of werid reasons, but for the reasons Kegboy mentioned above I don't know that Mark Jackson is the guy but i'd still probably give him a chance, he just wouldn't be my first choice.

I loved Mark as a player, and would like to have him as an assisstant. But, if he doesn't want anything other than a head coaching job, forget it. IMO, we need some one that has experience and a good feel for the job because there's enough uncertaintity amongst the players.

I always like Jackson, and even though some people take it as their duty to bash the man whenever his name comes up, I always liked his game, the fact he seemed to enjoy himself, and he always carried himself in a very professional way. Not to mention he was a decent baller.

With that said, I would have no problem with him as a assistant coach, that is as long as God allows him to ;)

I opened this thread and clicked "view first unread." But, I'm talking on the phone and in the time that it took to get to this post, I had forgotten what thread I was in. So, when I read 'Jackson' I thought of Stephen first. The line "...he always carried himself in a very professional way" really threw me off. Then, I finally got to the assistant coach part, I remembered what this thread was, and about fell over laughing.
