Phil Jackson and Steve Kerr Meet To Discuss Head-Coaching Position

Five time NBA champion Steve Kerr met with the New York Knicks team president Phil Jackson over the weekend to discuss a potential head-coaching position.


Kerr met with Jackson on Friday night for dinner, and then again on Saturday for a few hours to discuss the topic according to ESPN.  The meetings were to find out the level of interest that Kerr currently has for the vacant head-coaching position, along with his interest towards taking over the position for the team.

"Oh yeah, how could it not?" he said. "It's the Knicks and Phil Jackson, my coach. I would be crazy not to look into it."

"We will keep talking," said Kerr, a TNT analyst who was in Brooklyn to work Game 4 of the playoff series between the Nets and Toronto Raptors. "There is a lot to cover on both sides. This was the first time we've talked about the job. It just opened up last week. We got a lot of things to discuss."

Kerr won three NBA championships with the Chicago Bulls during the time Jackson was head coach there.  He also went on to win two more championships with the San Antonio Spurs in the late 90's.  He later became head of basketball operations and general manager of the Phoenix Suns from 2007-10.

Although Steve Kerr has never been a head coach, Jackson feels he has the same mind-set as him to become the next leader of the Knicks.

''I know Phil last week said we share the same space, which I think is well said,'' Kerr said. ''We share a lot of the same philosophies. I learned a lot of my basketball from him and Tex Winter, and so I think it's safe to say that we have a lot of the same ideas.''

Phil Jackson fired the coaching staff, including head coach Mike Woodson earlier this month.  Woodson went 37-45 this year with the Knicks; falling short of the playoffs by one spot.  Woodson did have the third highest winning percentage in team history going 109-79 (.580) during his tenure with the Knicks.

Steve Kerr is the top-choice for the head-coaching position after talks with Jackson.  Kerr will continue to work for TNT during the playoffs to fulfill his broadcasting job as an analyst.

Jackson has stated that he doesn't have a set date for putting a head coach in place, but he does hope to have one by the time the July summer league begins.
