2324974, what are you talking about? Jackson was getting a TON of interest

and he was a shitty broadcaster on national TV with no coaching experience too.

He actually turned down chances at gigs in two straight offseasons, including refusing to even interview with the Sixers who went to him first and the Nets before going to Golden State.

The overall point of black coaches not getting the same opportunities (for instance a Vinny DelNegro HC slot or Kiki Vandewaghe GM spot) has merit but Mark Jackson specifically got more burn before ever coaching at any level than any black coach I can remember.
