Mark Jackson has briefly opened up about his future after exiting ESPN as a top sports analyst and according to him, he is uncertain about his future. In short, he got no idea about his next future move but let’s see how it goes. Something big could happen though.
He also talked about if he got a beef with the man replacing him at ESPN, Doc Rivers, and according to him, he has no beef with Doc and I think that is maturity.
Mark Jackson ain’t sure what’s next for him following his abrupt exit from his role as ESPN’s top NBA color analyst … but one thing he does know is he has no hard feelings toward the man who’s replacing him — Doc Rivers.
We caught up with the former Golden State Warriors head coach out in Beverly Hills on Friday … and despite being let go from ESPN just a couple weeks ago, he was in great spirits.
While he said he doesn’t know if his next career move will include coaching or broadcasting … he told us he’s confident it’ll be a good one for him regardless.
“It’s going to work out,” he said. “Figuring it out now. But the next move will be my best move.”
“Excited about what God has for me,” he added.
As for Rivers, who will replace Jackson on ESPN’s top broadcast team alongside Mike Breen and Doris Burke, Jackson says he hopes for all kinds of success for the guy.
In fact, he said he’s actually spoken with Rivers recently … and there’s no beef whatsoever.
“I wish Doc nothing but the best,” he said. “He’s a Hall of Fame coach. A tremendous guy. And he’ll be great.”
Mark Jackson is experienced in the job and I see him grabbing a top job at one of the giant media sports fraternities. He is probably in talks with one of them but keeping it on the low for now until it happens. All the best to him!
