Phil Jackson looks set to finalise his move as the new GM at the New York Knicks, but Knicks head coach Mike Woodson might not want to get too happy about the new appointment.

According to reports, in an effort to stamp his authority on the ailing New York franchise Jackson is looking to sack Woodson in the off-season and bring in his own man.

And that new man could well be Steve Kerr.

Kerr is most famous for two things; one is getting punched in the face by Michael Jordan and the second is nailing a couple of clutch three pointers during his time at the Chicago Bulls.

And the former Phoenix Suns GM and current NBA Analyst on TNT could be in line for his first head coaching job.

"If - that's if - Phil Jackson runs the Knicks don't rule out the team's next coach being...Steve Kerr." Frank Isola of the New York Daily News tweeted out earlier.

And Adam Zagoria of The Knicks Blog went one step further, interviewing Kerr himself and confirming that he wanted to become an NBA coach.

Kerr stopped himself from talking about the Knicks job however and said that it was all just rumours at this point.

"...I don’t want to be quoted on all that stuff,” Kerr said on Wendesday. “It’s sort of unsavoury in a lot of ways for me because there are people’s jobs at stake.”

Mike Woodson is on the hot seat at the moment and if his Knicks side fail to make the playoffs this season then he is almost definitely set for the sack.
