Former NBA player and part time actor, Rick Fox says he’d be interested in coaching the Knicks if Phil Jackson called. Fox did say that he believes Phil Jackson is “the best guy” to be head coach.
“I’m hoping — I keep saying to Phil Jackson — he needs to coach the team. He’s the best guy for it. He’s the holy grail of coaches,” Fox said in an interview with Bloomberg Television. “If he needed my support in some way, it’d be hard to turn him down. Or if he needed me to step in and do the job myself, I’d definitely welcome that.”
Fox played on three Championship teams under Jackson and the Lakers.
