Mike Woodson and his entire coaching staff have been fired by Phil Jackson and the New York Knicks.
“I have a tremendous amount of respect for Mike Woodson and his entire staff,” Phil Jackson said in a statement. “The coaches and players on this team had an extremely difficult 2013-14 season, and blame should not be put on one individual. But the time has come for change throughout the franchise as we start the journey to assess and build this team for next season and beyond.”
Woodson has an overall record of 109-79 (.580) with the New York Knicks. He also helped the franchise get their first Atlantic Division title in 19 years. However, the Knicks feel like it is time to move on. According to reports, the Knicks have already begun searching for a new coaching staff.
Steve Kerr is rumored to be a potential head coach for New York. Kerr played under Phil Jackson in Chicago, and was a general manager for the Phoenix Suns.
