Apparently Jerry had some sort of epiphany on Friday and withdrew his name out of consideration for the Bobcat coaching gig. Maybe he realized the team can't be fixed with the current group of players or that MJ would suck to work with, but he had this to say:
"I took myself out today. I don't want to comment on it because it's never profitable for anybody. It just makes it sound like you're making a statement about someone. But they were wonderful and there were no problems. I just took myself out."
Anyone else think this is a bunch of horse manure?
Jerry's such a class act; it makes me wonder what the real deal was. Here's a link to the Trib article.
