NBA Rumors: Steve Kerr could become next New York Knicks coach

Former NBA player Steve Kerr is famous for three things.

One – being the punching bag for Michael Jordan.

Two – hitting a few clutch three-point shots as a member of the Chicago Bulls.

Three – being an analyst on TNT.

He may be famous for a fourth in the near future – being the head coach of the New York Knicks.

According to Frank Isola of the New York Daily News, Kerr is interested in becoming a head coach and could potentially be the Knicks head coach if Phil Jackson accepts his front office role with the organization.

If – that’s if – Phil Jackson runs the Knicks don’t rule out the team’s next coach being…Steve Kerr. A current NBA coach says that Steve Kerr wants to coach and that “he’ll be really good. He’s smart and he’s a good leader.”

Kerr of course worked as the Phoenix Suns general manager prior to becoming an analyst on TNT and was quite successful in the role.

He of course has history with Jackson given their time together during the Chicago Bulls mid 90’s dynasty.
