Stu Jackson, 2008

Stuart Wayne "Stu" Jackson (born December 11, 1955) is an American former head coach and the former Executive Vice President in the National Basketball Association (NBA). He has coached two different NBA teams: the New York Knicks in 1990 and 1991, and the Vancouver Grizzlies in 1997 and served as the Grizzlies' general manager.


Jackson played basketball at the University of Oregon and Seattle University.[1]

Jackson worked as an associate coach and head recruiting coordinator under Rick Pitino at Providence College from 1985 to 1987. He also worked as an assistant coach at Washington State University from 1983 to 1985 and at the University of Oregon from 1981 through 1983.

Jackson was named the head coach of the New York Knicks in 1989 at the age of 33, becoming the then second-youngest head coach in NBA history. The Knicks went 52-45 during his tenure, upsetting the Boston Celtics in the 1990 playoffs before losing to the eventual NBA champion Detroit Pistons. He was head coach of the Wisconsin Badgers in the 1992–1993 and 1993–1994 seasons, leading the Badgers to the NCAA Tournament.[2]

In June 2007, he became the Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations for the NBA, a league official whose duties included penalizing players for on-court misconduct. His duties included being in charge of on-the-court operations, scheduling, game rules, conduct, discipline and serving as the chair of the Competition Committee.

Jackson holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Seattle University. Jackson resides in New York with his four daughters.[3]
