Mark Jackson to Be First Interviewee for Phoenix Coaching Gig

The Suns don’t have a short list, let alone a front-runner. There is no telling where ABC analyst Mark Jackson stands, but he is regarded well enough to be Phoenix’s first interview.

The Suns brass plans to talk to Jackson on Friday or Monday about their vacant head-coaching job.

"They’re prepared to win right now," Jackson said. "That’s the most intriguing thing."  [AZ Central]
