Will Steve Kerr be next Knicks coach?Posted by Inside Hoops
Here’s the New York Daily News reporting on the Knicks, soon-to-be new team president Phil Jackson, and a coaching possibility:
Steve Kerr says that having his name linked to the Knicks head coaching job is “awkward” but Kerr did not rule out the possibility of him becoming Phil Jackson’s first significant hire.
“It’s very awkward because it is just speculation,” Kerr said on NBC Sports Network’s Dan Patrick Show. “More than anything, you’re talking about somebody else’s job.”
Jackson will be introduced as Knicks president on Tuesday and it is believed that Kerr, who played for Jackson in Chicago, is a top candidate to eventually replace Mike Woodson, who is under contract through next season.
