Iconic Coach To Become Knicks' Team President

By Jim McCoy Tue 18th March SportsNBANew York KnicksPhil Jackson
Phil Jackson has returned to the New York Knicks as their team president. The Knicks announced Jackson's hiring Tuesday at a news conference in the lobby of Madison Square Garden, where a giant sign reading "Welcome Home Phil" was overhead and shirts with the No. 18 Jackson wore as a player lined the racks in the merchandise store. Jackson was a member of the Knicks' championship-winning teams in 1970 and 1973, but they haven't won a title since. Jackson went on to become the league's most successful coach, winning 11 championships with the Los Angeles Lakers and Chicago Bulls. This will be his first time as an executive and the Knicks say he will be in charge of all basketball decisions. Steve Mills will remain as general manager.
