New York Knicks president Phil Jackson praised Jeff Hornacek’s “basketball acumen” while announcing on Thursday that Hornacek will be the team’s new coach. Hornacek, 53, will be the Knicks’ fifth coach in six seasons. He will be the second coach Jackson has hired since taking over as team president late in the 2013-14 season.

“Jeff has a tremendous basketball acumen and possesses strong leadership skills,” Jackson said in a statement. “During his career as both a player and coach, he has demonstrated the ability to elevate the game.”
