Mark Jackson will not be next 76ers coachPosted by Inside Hoops
Kate Fagan of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports:
Mark Jackson, who seemed to be in the final stages of scheduling an interview with the 76ers for their coaching vacancy, has removed his name from consideration, according to his agent, Steve Kauffman.
Kauffman said Jackson “doesn’t feel it’s the right opportunity for him at this time.”
In the last week, Sixers president and general manager Ed Stefanski met with two candidates, Doug Collins and Avery Johnson, but has yet to formally meet with a third.
Before stepping out of the race, Jackson seemed poised to become Stefanski’s next official interview. According to an NBA source, Stefanski will formally meet with Portland Trail Blazers assistant coach Monty Williams on Monday.
