From the New York Post’s Marc Berman.

A self-assured Herb Williams said yesterday he believes he’ll still be the Knicks head coach next season. Williams claims Isiah Thomas has not told him such, but he’s getting good signals.

Williams is even considering installing more triangle-offense principles next season after going to a coaching clinic last weekend in Seattle run by Phil Jackson’s former aide and triangle guru, Tex Winter.

“I feel confident right now,” Williams said. “To be honest with you, I always have. Right now I’m going about my duties as if I’m the head coach.

“They haven’t took my pass to the gym yet. My keys still work in my office. I’m still feeling pretty good. When I come up to the gate and I flash my pass and it doesn’t open, I’ll know what’s going on.”
