Warriors’ Lacob Apologizes for Criticizing Jackson

Updated

on

Warriors co-owner Joe Lacob apologized Sunday for comments he made last week at a venture capitalists luncheon in Menlo Park regarding his reasons for firing coach Mark Jackson.

“I have a tremendous amount of respect for Mark Jackson and what he accomplished as our head coach,” Lacob wrote in an e-mail to this newspaper. “He did a terrific job. I’ve said that many times over the last several months and in recent days, including at this week’s event.

“I was asked to draw comparisons earlier this week between building businesses in the tech world and the sports world and, unfortunately, I used some poor judgment. That’s my mistake. I did attempt to reach out to Mark on Friday, and I certainly apologize for my comments and any unintended harm. I know that Mark will succeed again in this business.”
