The Lakers and Phil Jackson are done meeting for the day, according to Mike Bresnahan of the Los Angeles Times. Per Bresnahan, the meeting ended without an official job offer being made, but if Phil Jackson wants to coach the Lakers, then he will be the next head coach of the Lakers.

From Bresnahan:

Lakers' meeting with Phil Jackson is over. No official job offer was made but it's well understood that the job is Jackson's if he wants it.

The suspense is killing me! It looks like we might have to wait a little bit longer before Phil Jackson is officially the new coach of the Lakers, but one has to believe that it's just a matter of time at this point.
