NEW YORK (AP) - Mike Woodson isn't mad the New York Knicks wanted Phil Jackson for his job. And if Jackson wants a coach to run the triangle offense, Woodson knows someone who could do it.
Woodson says Wednesday he ''absolutely'' could teach it, though he said he could do it better if Jackson helped him.
Woodson spoke for the first time since the Knicks' news conference Tuesday, when he learned that Madison Square Garden chairman James Dolan originally spoke to Jackson about coaching the team. Jackson wasn't interested, but the Knicks instead hired him as team president.
Jackson said he wouldn't insist on the triangle, the offense he used to win 11 championships as a coach. But he spoke passionately about the offense and its principles, so it may be his hope.
