took the shot but Leverkusen goalkeeper Bernd Leno stopped it.

OAKLAND, Calif. James Conner Youth Jersey . -- Golden State Warriors co-owner Joe Lacob has never been afraid to take a risk. And he knows his latest move -- firing coach Mark Jackson -- comes with a lot of risk. Lacob just believes its one worth taking. After jettisoning Jackson on Tuesday, Lacob and general manager Bob Myers moved forward on filling the teams coaching vacancy Wednesday. Lacob said he has no set criteria for his next coach and no timetable to make the hire, but hes counting on the search to attract more candidates -- and more top-tier talent -- than when he hired Jackson three years ago. "We do have some ideas of what we want to do," Lacob said in a phone interview with The Associated Press. "We will look at all the basic aspects such as basketball experience, and I dont mean coaching necessarily. Someone like Mark Jackson had played 17 years in the NBA, thats a lot of experience. In this case it might be more coaching experience, it might not. Were kind of open to that. "But it has to be someone with good pedigree, someone whos a leader, someone who can deal with the pressure of a situation. We have been somewhat successful now and want to go to the next level." The job is certainly a far more attractive one than when Lacob hired Jackson away from the ESPN/ABC broadcast table in June 2011. The Warriors are coming off a 51-win season and consecutive playoff appearances for the first time in 20 years, and theyve surrounded star Stephen Curry with young talent. Lacob compared the decision to change coaches to how he built his fortune as a venture capitalist in Silicon Valley. He said theres a different person to lead a business at different stages of development, and the Warriors have gone from a "startup" company to an organization looking to maximize its output. "Or in this case win an NBA championship," he said. "And we just felt overall we needed a different person to go forward and get to the next level." Where the Warriors go for their next coach is unclear. Lacob and Myers both declined to discuss specific candidates. Former NBA player and current TNT broadcaster Steve Kerr, who is also a candidate for the New York Knicks job, has close ties to Lacob and Warriors President Rick Welts from Kerrs time as the general manager for the Phoenix Suns. Former Orlando Magic coach Stan Van Gundy, who went to high school in nearby Martinez, California, has been mentioned for multiple openings the past few years but has yet to show a desire to go back to the bench. If the Warriors look to the college ranks, Iowa States Fred Hoiberg and Connecticuts Kevin Ollie are rising stars in the profession. Lacob, who insisted NBA coaching experience is not a requirement, could also try to make a splash by luring a more tenured coach such as Michigan States Tom Izzo to the professional ranks. Or, as was the case with Jackson, make another unconventional hire. The one thing Lacob is banking on is he should have a more wide-ranging field than when he made his first coaching hire as owner. Among the coaches the Warriors reached out to during that search: Jackson, Michael Malone, Mike Brown, Brian Shaw, Dwane Casey, Jeff Van Gundy and Mike Budenholzer. "We think this is a very attractive job," Lacob said. "Compared to three years ago, we have an outstanding organization. Three years ago, not only was the team not winning, but the organization needed a lot of work." Lacob also understands a new coach comes with the risk of disrupting team chemistry. Nearly every player publicly called for Jackson to return -- most notably Curry, whom Lacob said was told of the decision ahead of time. Lacob said he hopes his ownership group has built enough clout with players and fans since it bought the franchise in 2010 that they will have faith in the decisions management makes. "I think they have the same goals as us -- to win and to achieve a high level of success," Lacob said. "And I think they have to trust us a little bit, that we have the same goals and were going to do everything we can to bring in the best coach possible and will manage the attributes of each player in a way that will allow us to win as many games as possible."

FRANKFURT, Germany -- Bayer Leverkusen secured a 2-1 victory over Hoffenheim on Friday with a goal that wasnt and Hoffenheim lodged a protest hoping for a replay. Stefan Kiesslings header at the near post from a corner narrowly missed the target, the ball hit the outside of the net but rolled into the goal through a hole in the netting. Although television replays left no doubt, referee Felix Brych ignored pleas from Hoffenheim players, who also appeared to be taken by surprise at first. Brych was shown the breach in the netting but the FIFA referee shrugged and stood by his decision as the game had already resumed. "Its a scandal. That was no goal, there are no two ways about it. We are definitely going to protest," Hoffenheims managing director Alexander Rosen said. His Leverkusen counterpart, Rudi Voeller, also said it was "definitely" not a goal and said his team was in an "uncomfortable situation." "Thats not how we wanted to win the game," Voeller said. "The fair result would have been a 2-2." Kiesslings first reaction was to turn away in frustration at missing the chance and hold his head in his hands. Only when his teammates surrounded him in celebration did Kiessling also raise his arms in tepid triumph. "I didnt really see it, I turned away but I was surprised to see the ball in. I didnt know how it got in," Kiessling said. The incident resembled Thomas Helmers famous "phantom goal" for Bayern Munich against Nuremberg in 1994 that finished in a 2-1 Bayern win. That match was replayed and Bayern won 5-0 to capture the title. Brych said, "there was a corner and then the ball was in the net." "I had a slight doubt but the reaction from the players was clear, nobody was against (the decision),"; Brych said. Cameron Sutton Womens Jersey. Brych said that none of the players -- including Kiessling -- had told him that it wasnt a goal. It wasnt Brychs only controversial moment. He disallowed a Hoffenheim goal that was clearly onside and incorrectly awarded a penalty to Hoffenheim, although the spot kick was missed. Sidney Sam scored against the run of play to put Leverkusen ahead after 26 minutes and Kiesslings "goal" doubled the lead in the 70th before Sven Shipplock pulled one back for Hoffenheim late in the match. In the 82nd, Brych awarded a penalty for Hoffenheim although Roberto Hilbert played the ball and Roberto Firmino fell over him. The tackle was outside the box anyway. Firmino himself took the shot but Leverkusen goalkeeper Bernd Leno stopped it. Firmino pounced on the rebound but hit the post and Emir Spahics clearing attempt also hit the post before the ball was finally kicked away. Sam found the space to slot into the low corner despite facing three Hoffenheim defenders in the 26th. Gonzalo Castro did the work, delivering the ball after an unchallenged run down the middle and Sam scored his league-high seventh goal of the season. Hoffenheim was the team dictating play but could not use its chances and also had the misfortune to have a regular goal mistakenly disallowed for a non-existent offside. Kevin Vollands attempt was blocked at the last moment, Sejad Salihovics free kick was cleared on the line and Anthony Modeste missed Hoffenheims best chance when Leverkusen goalkeeper Bernd Leno managed to divert his point-blank shot into the corner. While Hoffenheim wasted half a dozen chances, Leverkusen did look dangerous on the rare break. Modeste had another header saved in the second half, while on the other side Castros shot was palmed away by Koen Casteels.
