Rumors in New York have linked Steve Kerr with the vacant New York Knicks coaching job and the current analyst is expected to make his decision later this week, but could he still stay on the west coast.

Kerr, who currently lives in California has long been said to prefer a west coast coaching job despite being very friendly with former coach and current Knicks president, Phil Jackson.

However now two west coast jobs have appeared, perhaps causing a dilemma for Kerr.

The LA Lakers and Golden State Warriors are both now vacant after Mike D'Antoni resigned and Mark Jackson was fired in the past week.

Early speculation regarding the Warriors job has Kerr has a frontrunner: "TNT analyst Steve Kerr has yet to speak with the Warriors but likely has interest in the job, according to a person familiar with his situation." Sam Ammick of USA Today reports.

Kerr has never coached in the NBA before but did have a spell as GM of the Phoenix Suns and appears to be very in demand by a host of teams.

Kerr's decision may well come down to a matter of dollars and cents however, there is a lot to be said for living an easy life and it may be hard to convince the analyst to leave his easy living for the grind of New York.
