In order to build something sustainable, consistency is key. Look no further than the Knicks as an example. Musical chairs at the head coaching position is never a good thing. After a 54-win season a year ago and the first division crown in two decades, Mike Woodson has been fired as head coach of the New York Knicks. Presumably, Phil Jackson pulled the trigger.
This should come as a shock to no one, Woodson included, but where do the Knicks go from here? If reports are accurate, Phil has interest in TNT analyst, Steve Kerr. My guess is that Kerr will be named the next Knicks head coach within the next three weeks or so. I’m also guessing that he will not fare well in that role. Regardless, whoever is brought in to coach this squad, Phil Jackson better make sure they are there for the entire time he’s there because musical chairs needs to cease.
Like I’ve said for years, just give long-time assistant Herb Williams a look (who was let go as well). As the saying goes,”what you’ve been looking for may be right in front of you.” At this point, why not? Kerr won’t attract free agents any more than Herb will.
April 21-Phil Jackson announced today that the team’s coaching staff have been relieved of their duties, effective immediately.
