Phil Jackson will not be the next coach of the Nets. A league source told The Post that Jackson is not looking to coach. The Nets had contacted Jackson in order to gauge his interest in possibly returning to the sidelines and taking over their team. Jackson, an 11-time champion as a coach with the Bulls and Lakers, is said to be interested in returning to the game in some capacity for the first time since retiring from coaching the Lakers at the end of the 2010-11 season.
