Lakers News: Lakers Have Contacted Phil Jackson For Coaching Job

According to Mike Bresnahan of the Los Angeles times, they’ve made contact!

 

We know the man’s resume. Phil Jackson has 11 championships, five with the Lakers. After the firing of Mike Brown, the Lakers front office realized that they don’t have much of a window left with this current team. The Laker fans echoed this sentiment, as they were chanting, “We Want Phil!” during their game earlier against the Warriors. And Dwight Howard agreed as well; he wants Phil Jackson back with the Lakers.

Jackson left the Lakers after the 2010-11 season, when they got swept by the Dallas Mavericks in the second round of the playoffs.
