Phil Jackson is now working for the Detroit Pistons – not to coach – but to help them find a coach.  Detroit Pistons owner, Tom Gores, said, ““Phil Jackson is a friend and one of the best minds in the business.  We are thrilled to have him as an adviser as we make some very important decisions for this franchise. Joe (Dumars) and I discussed this and he and I are in full agreement that this is a great opportunity.”
Jackson will only work with the Pistons on a temporary basis until they find a head coach, however, the eleven time champion’s feedback and help are something the Pistons really value.  GM Joe Dumars, said, “Tom and I discussed using a consultant as part of our decision-making process in our search for a head coach and we feel that Phil Jackson is a great resource to use.  I look forward to talking with Phil next week.”

Maybe sooner than later Phil will see the real problem being Joe Dumars and replace him as well.
