Phil Jackson: "No intention of ever coaching again;" Would he take executive job?

Kevork Djansezian

If the Nets intend to offer Phil Jackson the Nets coaching job this season --or any time-- they may be out of luck.

"I have no intention of ever coaching again," Jackson told SheridanHoops.com in a brief statement Tuesday.

He offered no details on whether the Nets had approached him since ownership fired Avery Johnson two weeks ago.

Sheridan did note, "Jackson’s statement also did not address a future role in some other capacity with an NBA team," adding,"That is where Brooklyn could come back into the picture if owner Mikhail Prokhorov was willing to offer him a top executive job for the franchise that relocated to New York City this season after 36 years in New Jersey."

So for now, the Nets job is Carlesimo’s to lose, Sheridan said. What did Carlesimo think of Jackson's statement. “I don’t believe Phil,” Carlesimo said with a big smile after the game. “I’ve known Phil too long.”
