Just like it felt inevitable that Phil Jackson would run the Knicks, it feels like just a matter of time before Steve Kerr becomes the next Head Coach. According to the New York Post Kerr is prepared to accepted the job if/when offered:
According to a source close to the situation, Kerr “absolutely expects” to be offered the job. “And if he’s offered the job he’s definitely going to do it,” the source told The Post.
The Post has learned Kerr has had conversations with his bosses at Turner Sports about adjusting his schedule as an analyst during the upcoming playoffs should he be named the Knicks head coach.
It looks like Phil Jackson is going to follow the Pat Riley model of bringing in a coach that he knows he can mold into the coach he wants. I like the strategy, but of course the first question is: how does Kerr feel about Melo?
