Sam SpiegelmanPhil Jackson has yet to decide on a head coach, but we may have gotten some insight into the coaching staff.
Eighteen-year veteran Jerry Stackhouse wants to pursue a coaching career. Last season he was in talks to join the Atlanta Hawks’ staff, and this go-round he has met with Knicks president Phil Jackson about a role with the team, according to NBA.com.
Stackhouse cited coaches like Doc Rivers, Mark Jackson and Jason Kidd, who went from player to head coach right away. Stackhouse, however, is comfortable spending time as an assistant first with an eye set on being a head coach later on in his career.
