Steve Kerr says he met with Phil Jackson and had dinner to discuss Knicks job. Reiterates he is interested and there will be further talks— Ohm Youngmisuk (@NotoriousOHM) April 27, 2014
Kerr has long been considered the front-runner for the position, even before Jackson took over as head of basketball operations in April. He's indicated in the past he's looking to coach and that he anticipated meeting with Jackson.
Kerr possesses the necessary knowldege of the triangle offense that Jackson wants in his coach, will defer to Jackson's wishes, and can provide a good face for the franchise as a media savvy former player with an aw-shucks attitude. This seems to be a slam dunk, if Kerr wants the job.
