It's official: Phil Jackson will be joining the Knicks, but this time in the front office.

A source familiar with the negotiations says that Jackson is scheduled to be introduced as the newest member of the Knicks' executive team in a press conference Tuesday.

This would mark the first time he would serve any NBA team in an executive position.

He would bring an enviable resume, namely 11 championship rings as a coach, six with the Chicago Bulls and five with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Jackson is no stranger to New York or the Knicks, as he played for the team in the 1960s and '70s.

He has remained largely out of the public view since 2011, when he stopped coaching the Lakers.
