As an outsider sorta unfamiliar with the whole situation, it seems odd that they'd sack the guy who gave them success. Reading this, though, it sounds like there were a whole lot of behind-the-scenes conflicts that never got fully resolved.

His players seemed to like him a lot. Maybe he'll do better at a franchise where he has more control.

I think the success of a team is determined first by ownership. Coaching and players are second. New ownership turned that franchise around. A franchise can have limited success if they hit the lottery, but it won't  be sustained.

Was this one of his catch phrases when he was an announcer?

Yup.

 I know a lot of Warriors fans are glad to see him go. The players liked him, but some people say that is because he wasn't working them hard. I am not a big fan of Mark Jackson, so I have a bias, but I think with the right coach the Warriors can take that next step like the Clippers appear to be doing this season.

Rumors of fighting with the assistant coaches were abound.  Punches were said to be thrown.

Love to hear the whole story behind this

the city of seattle should hire him and every coach or player that Golden state or OKC fire until they have enough for a team. The NBA couldnt deny them a franchise if they already have a team ready to go.

So, in his defense, he didn't get to hire his own assistant coaches.  However, Jackson was known to not talk to these assistant coaches for long periods of time.  Unfortunately, beyond everyone in the front office disliking him, there's not much being said about the whole story.  Mark Jackson has been known to cause issues with locker rooms before.  Utah is the specific example I am thinking of where he turned some of the locker room against John Stockton.

As a Dubs fan, I'm a big fan of this move.  There's been a serious infusion of talent the last few years, and it was clear that Mark Jackson was not a good coach in terms of basketball adjustments.  I think both adjustments in the Clippers series came from suggestions by vets on the team.  Basketball aside, I've never been fond of being led by a preacher who was extorted by a stripper he was banging.  Fark that guy, bring on Fred Hoiberg!
