me off as increasingly insecure when the team struggled. The Warriors

BERLIN - Thomas Mueller scored a hat trick as Bayern Munich won 4-0 at Eintracht Frankfurt to increase its overnight lead in the Bundesliga to seven points on Saturday.Franck Ribery set up Muellers first two, crossing for the World Cup winner to open the scoring in the 22nd minute and then again to finish a counterattack in the 64th. Mueller completed his hat trick three minutes later and Xherdan Shaqiri completed the scoring in the 86th.Were not playing badly at the moment. Were playing to a particular concept, no matter whos playing. We have talent coming off the bench, Mueller said. We also have excellent individual players who can make the difference.Bayern is unbeaten, with eight wins from 11 games, 27 goals scored and just three conceded.We now have a few days time to analyze calmly and see what we can improve, said Bayern coach Pep Guardiola, referring to the upcoming international break.The defending champions closest rivals, Wolfsburg and Borussia Moenchengladbach, were both playing their 11th-round games on Sunday.Elsewhere Saturday, Schalke disappointed in a 2-0 defeat at Freiburg, Bayer Leverkusen was held to a frustrating 0-0 draw by visiting Mainz, Augsburg beat promoted Paderborn 3-0 and Cologne won 4-3 at Hoffenheim.Werder Bremen defeated fellow struggler Stuttgart 2-0 in the late game. Sebastian Proedls 30th-minute header was followed by a wonderful strike in off the post by Fin Bartels in the 58th.Bremen kept a clean sheet for the first time in the league this season and moved out of the bottom place now occupied by Borussia Dortmund ahead of its game Sunday against Moenchengladbach.Frankfurt made an encouraging start against the league leader but Bayerns sheer quality ensured what transpired to be a comfortable victory.The whole world is finding it tough to get something from Bayern, Frankfurt midfielder Marco Russ said.Ribery played a one-two with Robert Lewandowski before cutting the ball back for Mueller, who scored at the second attempt, with his right knee, after his initial effort was blocked on the line by Bastian Oczipka.Mueller thought hed scored again shortly afterward, only for the effort to be pulled back for offside.Frankfurt finished the first half strongly and Alexander Meier forced a good save from Manuel Neuer in the 41st.The home side also started the second half courageously, but any hopes of a comeback were dashed when Mueller claimed his second. Philipp Lahm played the ball over the top and Ribery squared it for Mueller to shoot inside the far post.He completed his hat trick minutes later, when Mario Goetze helped the ball on after a Ribery throw in.Bayerns three substitutes were all involved in the last goal. Arjen Robben ran at the home defence and was thwarted by Frankfurt keeper Felix Wiedwald before he played it back to Sebastian Rode. Shaqiri then deflected Rodes effort past the helpless goalkeeper.The fans were with us and we delivered a good game. Its a shame that the score was so high, Frankfurts U.S. international defender Timmy Chandler said.It was Frankfurts fourth league loss in a row and its fifth including the German Cup. Tough games await with Gladbach and then Dortmund the next opponents.Freiburg followed up its first win of the season last weekend by claiming a deserved second against Schalke.Christian Guenter opened the scoring in the 22nd after Sidney Sam lost the ball in midfield, and Jonathan Schmid capitalized on a poor clearance from Dennis Aogo to make it 2-0 in the 68th.Mainz goalkeeper Loris Karius made a number of saves to deny Leverkusen, which had 24 efforts at goal, a Bundesliga high this season.Were playing well in the Champions League and were well positioned there, Leverkusen coach Roger Schmidt said. Were playing well in the Bundesliga but were not well positioned there. We need to change that.In Augsburg, Tobias Werner scored in the seventh minute and he made it 2-0 against Paderborn with a diving header early in the second half. The midfielder also created his sides third, with a free kick for Jan-Ingwer Callsen-Bracker to score with a header in the 68th.Hoffenheim got off to a flying start against Cologne when Adam Szalai scored early, only for Pawel Olkowski to equalize three minutes later.Matthias Lehmann then put the visitors ahead seven minutes after that with a free kick inside the right post, and Anthony Ujah made it 3-1 after a strong run in the 35th.Roberto Firmino pulled one back for Hoffenheim four minutes later and the Brazilian equalized with a header before halftime.However, Olkowski scored Colognes winner with his second in the 83rd.

Carl Nicks Buccaneers Jersey .J. -- The New York Giants placed starting centre David Baas on injured reserve Wednesday after he sustained his third injury this season. OAKLAND, Calif. -- Mark Jackson came to the Golden State Warriors talking big and brash. He promised playoff appearances and championships, and he delivered plenty of wins along the way. Away from the court, though, Jackson never backed down from doing things how he wanted. His inability to mesh with management -- and managements inability to mesh with Jackson -- increasingly overshadowed his success and ultimately cost him his job. The Warriors fired Jackson after three seasons Tuesday, ending the franchises most successful coaching tenure in the past two decades but also one filled with drama and distractions. "Obviously it was not made exclusively on wins and losses," Warriors owner Joe Lacob said. Lacob and general manager Bob Myers both thanked Jackson, saying he helped make the Warriors a more attractive franchise. But Myers said the decision to dismiss Jackson was "unanimous" among the teams executives -- though still not easy -- in part because the Warriors want a coach who can "develop a synergy" with everybody in basketball operations. Jacksons time with the Warriors will be remembered for the way he helped turn a perennially losing franchise into a consistent winner and the bold and bombastic way in which he did it. He guaranteed Golden State would make the playoffs in his first season, then finished 23-36 after the NBA labour lockout. The Warriors went 47-35 last season and had a memorable run to the second round of the playoffs, and they were 51-31 this season before losing in seven games to the Los Angeles Clippers in the first round. The Warriors, who have surrounded star Stephen Curry with a talented nucleus since Lacobs group bought the franchise in 2010, had not made the playoffs in consecutive years since 1991-92. They had made the post-season once in 17 years before Jackson arrived. Lacob compared the decision to replace Jackson to his work as a venture capitalist in Silicon Valley. "Theres a different CEO that may be required to achieve success at different stages of an organizations development," Lacob said. "When youre a startup company its one thing, when youre a small-growth company its one thing and when youre a mature company thats trying to reach a billion in sales -- or in this case win an NBA championship -- perhaps thats a different person. And we just felt overall we needed a different person." Lacob and Myers declined to discuss the coaching search, other than to say it would begin immediately. Former NBA player and TNT broadcaster Steve Kerr, former Orlando Magic coach Stan Van Gundy, Iowa States Fred Hoiberg and Connecticuts Kevin Ollie have been among the most talked-about candidates this off-season. The Warriors know a new coach comes with the risk of disrupting team chemistry, especially considering nearly every player publicly called for Jackson to return, most notably Curry, whom Lacob said was told of the decision ahead of time. Myers also spoke to several players after he and Lacob informed Jacksonn of their decision in a meeting Tuesday morning.dddddddddddd "The hope and belief after talking to them is that they trust us and they believe that we make decisions to win as well," Myers said. Jackson took to Twitter to thank the organization, players and fans. Several of his present and past players also applauded the job he had done. Jackson, a former NBA point guard who had his best seasons with the New York Knicks and Indiana Pacers, had never been a head coach at any level when Lacob hired him away from the ESPN/ABC broadcast table in June 2011. A minister who runs a church with his wife near their Southern California home, Jackson often spoke of his Christian beliefs while surprisingly turning the Warriors into one of the NBAs best defensive teams. But Jacksons boisterous personality at times did not play well with Warriors management, his staff and -- to a much lesser extent -- his players. And his attitude, which bordered on confidence and cockiness, also came off as increasingly insecure when the team struggled. The Warriors still stuck by Jackson even when he created news off the court, including when reports surfaced in June 2012 that he and his family were the targets of an extortion attempt related to an extramarital affair he had six years prior, which led to questions about his credibility and morals. The pressure on Jackson really heated up when the Warriors decided to pick up his contract option for the 2014-15 season last summer instead of negotiating a long-term deal as he had wanted. Management also encouraged Jackson to hire a strong tactician after top assistant Michael Malone -- who had several disagreements with Jackson -- left to become the coach of the Sacramento Kings. Instead, Jackson promoted Pete Myers and other assistants and hired Lindsey Hunter and Brian Scalabrine. And while reports of rifts within the team surfaced on occasion, having two assistants dismissed -- Scalabrine reassigned to the teams NBA Development League affiliate in Santa Cruz, and Darren Erman fired -- in a 12-day span before the playoffs perpetuated the idea that Jackson had fostered an environment of dysfunction, which he repeatedly refuted. The Warriors also parted ways with all of Jacksons assistants Tuesday. Several home losses to lesser teams frustrated Lacob more than anything and cost the Warriors a chance to earn anything more than the sixth playoff seed, which they also had a year ago when they upset Denver in the first round before falling to San Antonio. The Warriors still showed a lot of fight -- and an ability to make adjustments -- with centre Andrew Bogut out with a fractured right rib in the playoffs, pushing the third-seeded Clippers to seven games. "George Karl was Coach of the Year last year and got fired," Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. "Mark Jackson gets a team to multiple playoffs for the first time in a thousand years, and then gets fired. Its our job. Its a tough job, and I think everybody knows it now more than ever."
