Wikipedia is known as not a credible source. The problem with the platform is that anybody can edit the pages at any time.
Apparently, that was the case recently. Somebody named Mark Jackson as the new head coach of the New York Knicks prematurely.
The Knicks fired head coach Jeff Hornacek on Thursday morning after two seasons. Jackson has been mentioned as a front runner for the job.
However, Jackson, David Fizdale and the other candidates likely have not even been interviewed yet. No announcement is expected to come from the team for at least the next several days.
jackson, the 53-year-old New York native, has not coached on the sidelines since the 2013-14 season as the Golden State Warriors Head Coach.
Jackson played for the Knicks twice during his playing career.
He was the Warriors head coach for three seasons before being fired and Steve Kerr taking over. In his final season with the Warrior, he guided the team to a 51-31 record.
In the 2013-14 season, the Warriors lost in the first-round of the playoffs. The year before with a 47-35 record, Jackson guided the team to a Conference Semifinals appearance.
Jackson is 121-109 as an NBA Head Coach. After being fired by the Warriors, he went back to being an analyst for ESPN during their NBA coverage.
