Phil Jackson, who coached a record 11 NBA championship teams, has agreed to return to the struggling New York Knicks, the National Basketball Association team announced on Tuesday.
The former Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Lakers coach was introduced as the president of basketball operations of the beleaguered NBA team at a news conference.
"I am going to jump in with both feet," Jackson said. "We want to build a team. This is the best place to play basketball."
Jackson will be trying to recreate the magic he was part of with the Knicks in the 1970s.
