Phil Jackson won NBA titles as a player and a coach. Hell now try winning as an executive. And this quest will take him back to where his career began. Jackson has agreed to run the New York Knicks front office and will be formally introduced by the team at a news conference at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday morning, a person familiar with the negotiations between the 11-time champion coach and the franchise told The Associated Press on Friday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the Knicks would only confirm that a "major announcement" involving team executives was scheduled. Jackson also did not make any immediate public comment, but the move had been expected for several days -- and was practically confirmed earlier this week by Knicks star Carmelo Anthony, who said he had heard the Hall of Fame coach was "coming on board." Jackson had been courted by clubs before, and fans in Los Angeles clamoured for him to return to coaching not long after he left the Lakers after the 2010-11 season. Hes largely shunned limelight during this three-year break from work, during which he did things such as working on his health -- arthritis pain hampered him toward the end of his coaching career -- and released a book chronicling his basketball life. Denver coach Brian Shaw, who played for Jackson and has been an assistant under him as well, said Friday that he would not be surprised to see one of his mentors take on the challenge of rebuilding the Knicks. "I think hes a basketball lifer, a basketball junkie," Shaw said in Miami, where the Nuggets were playing the Heat. "I think that with all the success that hes had, what hes learned and his passion for the game, I think it gets boring when you do something like hes done all his life and all of a sudden youre kind of out of the mix. If he does do it, hed be excited about the challenge of attacking the game from a different position." Jackson played his first 10 NBA seasons with the Knicks -- he was there for 11 actually, missing the 1969-70 championship season because of injury. Jackson was a key part of the 1972-73 team that won the NBA title, topping the Lakers. New York hasnt won a championship since. Jackson has won 11 since, six with the Chicago Bulls and five more with the Lakers. Shaw has spoken with Jackson regularly during the season, saying that his former coach will sometimes call or text to ask if a play the Nuggets run was one that they used together during their triangle-offence days. But Shaw -- who will likely be mentioned as a potential coaching candidate in New York if the Knicks decide to part ways with Mike Woodson -- has kept his distance from Jackson during this will-he-or-wont-he process. "Ive kind of left him alone during this period of time because I know its a lot going on and certainly people are hitting him from every different direction," Shaw said. Odds are, that wont change anytime soon. Jacksons arrival in New York will likely usher in a new era for the Knicks, who may miss the playoffs this season after winning 54 games a year ago. Even NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said earlier this week that he wanted to see Jackson back in the game, saying "the league needs him." Apparently, the Knicks felt they needed him as well. New York could lose Anthony this summer through free agency, will likely look to upgrade their roster in several other areas, and Jackson will have to tackle all those issues -- and plenty of others -- even though the Knicks have spent about as freely as any team in recent years. And a playoff trip this year is hardly a certainty, with the Knicks currently on the outside of the post-season picture. With the Bulls, he had Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen. With the Lakers, he had Shaquille ONeal and Kobe Bryant. With the Knicks, hell have more questions than answers, at least in the beginning of his first foray into life as an executive. Theres also the issue of how much power hell actually have working for Madison Square Garden chairman James Dolan. Since the start of the 2004-05 season, the Knicks have gone through six head coaches and won a total of seven playoff games. Starting Tuesday, itll apparently be Jacksons job to change all that.

MIAMI -- The Miami Dolphins have a deal in place to renovate their stadium and will begin work this summer on the $350 million project, which will help South Floridas chances of hosting future Super Bowls. County commissioners gave final approval Tuesday to the plan, which will pay incentives to the Dolphins for hosting the Super Bowl and other major events. In exchange, team owner Steve Ross will pay for the renovations, with help from the NFL and possibly from a state subsidy. Planned renovations include a canopy over the stands but not the field, and upgrading the lights, sound system and seats, with the goal to have work completed before the start of the 2016 season. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell made it clear South Florida wouldnt get another Super Bowl without significant improvements to the stadium, which opened in 1987. Ross has been lobbying for renovations since he became majority owner in 2009, and he called the agreement with Miami-Dade County "unique and creative." "We have one of the worlds most aspirational cities, and as such deserve a stadium that will provide significant economic impact to Miami-Dade County," Ross said in a statement. "This will not only secure the future of the Dolphins, but will ensure that Miami has one of the worlds best venues to host events of this magnitude going forward." South Florida and New Orleans are tied for the most Super Bowls with 10. The most recent one in Miami was in 2010, and the Dolphins intend to bid next spring for the next available Super Bowl, which will be played in 2019. "That was part of the intent of trying to get it done," president and CEO Tom Garfinkell said.dddddddddddd "We want to bring in as many marquee events as we can as soon as we can." The county will use tourist development money to pay the Dolphins $4 million for each Super Bowl at the stadium, $3 million for each college football national championship game and $2 million for a college playoff game. The county also will pay for events such as soccer matches and major concerts. "It shows the commitment that our owner, Steve Ross, has to make this a world-class organization," Dolphins coach Joe Philbin said. "Its exciting for everybody in the organization, and I think its exciting for everybody in the South Florida region. Im sure well be able to attract some great events. Its a big day for us." Ross is now eligible for NFL money given to teams that secure government help in stadium deals. Hes also pursuing a new state program that could bring as much as $3 million a year to the stadium beyond the $2 million the state already pays. The team will continue to pay property taxes on the stadium. The Dolphins delegation at the commission meeting included Pro Football Hall of Famers Dan Marino and Larry Little, along with former players Jason Taylor, Dick Anderson and Nat Moore. Marino played in the first game at the stadium. "Im excited that its going to be around and get a new look," he said. "Its great for the community." The deal with the county came together after efforts by Ross to secure county and state tax money failed last year. Without legislative approval of that proposal, the Dolphins were unable to go forward with a planned referendum on the issue in Miami-Dade County. ' ' '
