Rumors have been swirling for months now that the New York Knicks would be getting rid of head coach Mike Woodson. Woodson and the Knicks have had a very up and down season this year. Injuries, poop guard play and lack of defense, saw a Knick team that was looking like a legitimate contender in the East last season to a team fighting for a play-off spot this season.

After the Knicks hired former Bulls and Lakers coach Phil Jackson to head up Basketball Operations, many figured that Woodson would be gone and Jackson would install his own man. According to Ken Berger at CBS Sports, that move has already happened.

 

Woodson isn’t a bad coach. His years coaching the Atlanta Hawks and the Knicks gave him a 315-365 career coaching record. Some team will give Woodson another shot.

In the meantime, New York has to find a replacement. It’s been reported that former Bulls guard and NBA commentator Steve Kerr is the lead candidate so far.
