Derek Fisher Vows To Bring Championship Back To New York


Derek Fisher says it was his calling to become an NBA head coach.

Fisher was officially announced as the Knicks head coach on Tuesday in a news conference at the team’s training facility.  He made it clear from the beginning that his goal was to “bring a championship back to New York.”

“I’m excited to embark on the next phase of my basketball career and look forward to coaching a Knicks team that fans can be proud of,” the 39-year-old Fisher said in a statement on Tuesday morning. “It’s an honor to work alongside Phil Jackson, who is both a legend and friend as we strive together to reach our ultimate goal of bringing a championship back to New York.”

Fisher signed a five-year, $25 million contract to take over and implement Phil Jackson’s triangle offense.
