Not every winning team this season will have the same head coach in 2014-15, as a number of playoff coaches are on the hot seat and need first round wins to even consider a return next year. Frank Vogel in Indiana and Scott Brooks in Oklahoma City are two prime examples, as is Kevin McHale down in Houston with the Rockets.
According to Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury News, the Golden State Warriors have yet to decide on what the future holds for Mark Jackson as head coach of their young and rising team.
Jackson helped get the team into the postseason last year and aided in sparking a memorable run that made the Dubs the talk go the NBA. But after a nice start to their followup campaign this year, the Warriors fell hard and ended up stumbling into the postseason almost by accident.
All of this raised concern about Jackson’s ability to control and manage the team, but he’s seemingly turned things around and gotten the Dubs motivated again. But he’s facing a 3-2 hole against the Clippers in a series that could end tonight in Oakland and should that happen, Jackson’s future will be as murky as the San Francisco fog the Dubs will be moving into in the near future.
