To get the New York Knicks back on the right track, newly appointed president Donnie Walsh may be looking for a New York city kind of guy.

According to a report in the New York Daily News, Walsh has targeted former-Knick point guard and current television analyst Mark Jackson to take over from Isiah Thomas as coach of the New York Knicks.

Few players can boast as much New York-credibility as Jackson. The native of Brooklyn was drafted by the Knicks with the 18th overall pick in the 1987 draft and spent parts of six seasons with the team. Prior to the NBA, Jackson manned the point for New York-based St. John's University, playing a key role in the team's Final Four run in 1985.

Jackson is reportedly close to Walsh, dating back to the days when Jackson was starting point guard for Donnie Walsh's Indiana Pacers.

Walsh has previously stated that he has a three-year plan to bring the Knicks back to respectability. Jackson has no previous coaching experience, but would be expected use those three-years as on-the-job training.
