The New York Knicks have offered a front office role to Phil Jackson, reports suggest.

According to the New York Daily News, Knicks' Chairman James Dolan met with Jackson earlier this week, with the view to a return for the former Knicks player turned coach.

Earlier reports had suggested talks had taken place with some suggesting Jackson could be set to take over as head coach. But it seems that Mike Woodson's job is safe for now with Jackson believed to be considering a boardroom position.

At present the exact role is unclear, but the Daily News have quoted sources who suggest it is much more than a advisory role with Jackson looking to get involved in the day-to-day running of the franchise should he accept the offer.

Jackson was part of the team who won the Knicks' only two championships and has since had an immensely successful coaching career with the Chicago Bulls and LA Lakers, winning 11 titles in all.

With the Knicks struggling this season, and looking likely to miss out on the playoffs any help will do, and you could certainly do a lot worse than Jackson.
