    W's pick up team option on Mark Jackson's contract for 2014-2015 season

    The Golden State Warriors have picked up the team option on Head Coach Mark Jackson's contract for the 2014-15 season, the team announced today.

    This past season, his second as head coach of the Warriors, Jackson guided his team to a 47-35 regular-season record, finishing second in the Pacific Division and earning the sixth seed in the Western Conference Playoffs. In doing so, he became just the fourth Warriors head coach since 1970 to lead a team into the postseason, joining Alvin Attles, George Karl and Don Nelson. Additionally, Jackson became the first Warriors coach to win at least 47 games in his second full campaign at the helm since 1971-72, when Attles directed Golden State to a 51-31 record during his second full season as head coach.

    After finishing 2011-12 with a 23-43 record during Jackson's debut campaign, the Warriors posted the second-highest winning percentage improvement in the NBA this past season, improving from .348 to .573 in 2012-13 - an improvement of +.225 that was bested only by the Brooklyn Nets (+.266). This winning percentage improvement also marks the third-largest year-over-year improvement in franchise history, trailing only the +.280 improvement made from 1987-88 (.244) to 1988-89 (.524) and the +.229 improvement made from 1952-53 (.174) to 1953-54 (.403).

    Since being named head coach of the Warriors on June 6, 2011, Jackson has placed an emphasis on defense and rebounding - two areas where the team had been traditionally weak. To that end, Golden State saw major statistical improvements this past season in several important defensive categories, including opponents' field goal percentage (fourth in NBA; 20th in 2011-12), opponents' three-point percentage (seventh; 28th in 2011-12), defensive rebounding (first; 24th in 2011-12) and rebounds per game (third; 28th in 2011-12).

    In the 2013 NBA Playoffs, Jackson's squad posted a First Round victory over the Denver Nuggets in six games, becoming just the second Warriors team to advance to the Western Conference Semifinals in the last 22 years. In the Semifinals, Golden State won two of the first four games of the best-of-seven series against the San Antonio Spurs before falling to the eventual Western Conference Champions in six games, 4-2. In the Spurs series, the Warriors earned multiple wins in the Semifinals for the first time since 1977 and, in Game 2, posted their first road victory over the Spurs since February of 1997, snapping a 30-game losing streak in San Antonio.

    Keeping Jackson on a short leash, in this case short lease...nice. This only prove the W's FO has the same doubts as I've been saying. As long as the W's are winning we'll give you a year at a time. lol

    Getting his option picked up doesn't mean they still can't fire him. It would just cost them more money. I don't see him lasting pass this season.

    ^wow. New member to #TeamFireJackson? I would love to hear why you think he won't make it past this season.

    This is nothing to celebrate, for some coaches this move could be seen as an insult. The W's FO has been aggressive so far, but this is a very tentative move. However, I disagree with the way the FO is handling this, either cut Jackson lose or sign him long term. I want commitment and I want commitment now. The roster is at or almost at it's peak, a head coach is not a position to be hesitant about. If the W's is to build a dynasty this is the time....! OK I'm done with my rant.

    They'll probably resign him towards the end of the season. Lets see how he manages this awesome roster, I'm sure he'll get a long term deal.



    she says go for the championship

    At one point a coach looked to negotiate a deal when his previous one expired, then somewhere along the way people decided that if a coach was on the bench at any point in the final year of his contract and he didn't have a new deal then he must be on his way out. Now you are saying that a coach is about to be fired if he only has 2 years left on his deal? Is 3 years on his deal enough or does it have to be 5? Or 7?

    The Warriors picked up the teams option to extend him out another year, meaning he has 2 years left on his deal. A coach with 2 years left on his deal whose team just picked up his option is NOT on the hot seat. AFTER this year he will be if he doesn't get a new deal. After, not now.
