Depending on who you believe, Phil Jackson is either thisclose to signing a deal to become a major player in the Knicks' front office or simply using the Knicks to generate interest from other NBA teams. But apparently, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll didn't get the memo about nothing being final yet. Because earlier this afternoon, he sent out this tweet congratulating Jackson on his new gig with the Knicks, even though he doesn't actually have a new job with the Knicks:
Congrats to Phil Jackson on his new role with the Knicks! It's good to have him back in the NBA!— Pete Carroll (@PeteCarroll) March 11, 2014
Does Carroll know something we don't? Or did he just jump the gun here? We'll see. But as of right now, Jackson signing with the Knicks is still just a rumor.
