George Willis of the New York Post is reporting that current TNT basketball analyst Steve Kerr is expecting an offer from the New York Knicks to become their next head coach and is prepared to accept the position.
A source close to Kerr stated he expects to get the opportunity and is already working behind the scenes with Turner Sports in case an offer comes.
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.
According to the report, Kerr is viewed as the leading candidate due to his relationship with Jackson. Of course his knowledge of the triangle offense from those days also helps.
Kerr was the GM of the Phoenix Suns from 2007-10.Powered by Sidelines
