The Warriors have dismissed an assistant coach, but this time I don’t believe it has anything to do with a coach not getting along with Mark Jackson. 

Monte Pool is reporting that the Warriors have dismissed assistant coach Darren Erman for a serious violation of company policy.

Whatever Erman did was serious enough that even head coach Mark Jackson would have been fired had he committed such an egregious offense.

General manager Bob Myers, visibly shaken, on Saturday morning stressed that Erman’s dismissal was for violation of company policy – and that any Warriors employee would have been fired if committing such an infraction.

Erman’s dismissal, coming near the end of his third season with the franchise, was made at the ownership/management/legal level.

“This is the type of decision that would be made across the board and irrespective of position within the organization,” Myers said in a news release statement. “Obviously, the timing is unfortunate but we hold all of our employees, whether in basketball operations or other aspects of the business, accountable for their actions and to the same standard.

“We move forward and thank Darren for his contributions.”

The Warriors insist the move had no relations to Brian Scalabrine being demoted within the organization.
