A second coaching job slips away from Phil
Jerry Colangelo's re-election as chairman of the USA national team means Phil Jackson's desire to add that post to his resumè is not likely to be sated. Jerry isn't Jim Buss when it comes to Phil, but it's not the kind of relationship that bears favors. Gregg Popovich and Doc Rivers remain the top candidates to succeed Coach K. Pop's familiarity with all things Europe is a big plus.
