Former Gophers star Bobby Jackson may be coming home soon.

The Wolves are in contract negotiations to make Jackson the player development coach, according to the Star Tribune.

He'll replace David Adelman, who was promoted when Bill Bayno left for the Toronto Raptors. Jackson also played two seasons for the Wolves from 1998-200, when Flip Saunders was the coach. He played most of his career in Sacramento, mostly for Rick Adelman when he was the Kings coach.

You'll also remember, even if the NCAA won't, that Jackson was the star of the Gophers men's basketball team that advanced to the 1997 Final Four, before vacating the victories following a massive academic fraud scandal.
