Coaching great Phil Jackson has all but ruled out a return to the bench, but has said he wouldn’t mind working in a NBA front office role.
We reported earlier that Jackson declined a coaching position with the Knicks, but now the NY Daily News reports that he has been offered a front office position and is expected to make a decision by next week.
Phil Jackson has been offered a front office position with the Knicks and is expected to give the club a decision sometime next week, the Daily News has learned.
According to an NBA source, Garden Chairman James Dolan has met with Jackson about a potential return to the franchise where he was a member of the Knicks’ only two championship teams. Jackson also won 11 titles as a head coach with the Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Lakers but apparently has no interest in coaching the Knicks.
Although Jackson has never worked in a Front Office role, he would more than likely be a vast improvement than the mess they have right now.
