Steve Kerr is “weighing all of his options,” according to his agent Mike Tannenbaum (Begley, May 13).
Tannenbaum said that Kerr “thinks the world of” Knicks President Phil Jackson.
Kerr is expected to have a decision in the next few days.
Harris DeckerEnough is enough. The posturing is getting annoying. I expect Steve Kerr to be the next Knicks head coach but I’m very frustrated at the moment. I knew it wouldn’t be a quick hire but I also did not expect things to take as long as they have. When Mike Woodson was fired we learned that President Phil Jackson, similar to coach Phil Jackson, makes decisions in a calm, cool and methodical fashion. He doesn’t rush to conclusions and he certainly won’t be hasty to hire a coach.
All of that aside, the fans are dying here. We’re watching great playoff basketball under the umbrella of having no idea who will be the coach next year. Steve Kerr needs to make a decision or Phil Jackson needs to light a fire under him.
