2324670, You don't think Jackson will get another chance?

Skiles's career was somewhat similar. In Phoenix: 40 wins in season one. 51 wins in season two. The difference is that in season 3, the Suns traded Kidd for Marbury and Skiles took the fall during the season when it didn't pan out as hoped.

In Chicago, thye tanked season one but then went from 19 wins to 47. Next two seasons were 41 and 49 wins (including a trip to the semis) and then got fired after a slow start at the start of the following season.

Personally, I don't think Jackson's a good X's and O's coach either. The world of difference between the two is that Skiles is a hard ass who loses his players after a few seasons whereas Jackson inspires them. I'd be surprised if Jackson didn't find another coaching gig in the next year or two.
