NBA TV analyst Rick Fox told NBC Sports Radio that he is a candidate to coach the New York Knicks, and that he has spoken to Knicks president Phil Jackson about the job, via Pro Basketball Talk and the New York Daily News:

“Yeah…I’ve been a candidate for while and what I’m comfortable communicating is that there’s really nothing for me to do,” Fox told The Erik Kuselias Show on NBC Sports Radio. “Phil has expressed his interest, and the patience for him discovering who is right for that job is left in his court.

“Phil Jackson obviously is with the Knicks now and I’ve been speaking with him for about four months about that very situation,” said Fox, who works for Turner as well as SiriusXM NBA Radio. “I love supporting him and his vision for what’s going to go down in New York and we’ve had those discussions and so he knows I’m open to working with him and doing something as exciting as resurrecting the chances of the Knicks returning to glory.”
