Warriors’ Jackson Gets First Year Coaching Tips From Harbaugh

SANTA CLARA (CBS/AP) – New Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson can learn from 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh when it comes to preparing for a season in short order because of a lockout.

Jackson brought his staff to San Francisco’s practice Wednesday and met with Harbaugh before the NFC West-leading Niners took the field gearing up for Sunday’s game against St. Louis. Jackson plans to hit Raiders headquarters Thursday to observe another successful first-year Bay Area coach: Oakland’s Hue Jackson.

In a charcoal gray Warriors pullover, Jackson expressed how eager he is to get started at last. He referenced the “obstacles” he has in common with Harbaugh and Jackson—without using the word lockout. The NBA has restrictions on how much team officials can say even with a tentative deal in place.
