Knicks Plan To Bring Back Mike Woodson

The Knicks aren't in good shape in the first round series against the Heat, plagued by injuries and down 3-1 heading into tonight's game in Miami. But despite the team's seemingly imminent playoff exit, interim coach Mike Woodson has been informed by owner James Dolan that the Knicks intend to bring him back for next season, according to Marc Berman of the New York Post.

A New York Daily News report this week suggested that the two sides had started discussing a contract extension for Woodson, though the Knicks' head coach adamently denied that to local media yesterday. According to Berman, the team will announce a new contract for its coach sometime after the season.

Although there had been plenty of speculation that the Knicks would pursue 11-time champion Phil Jackson for the permanent job, Berman hears from multiple sources that the club never contacted the former Bulls and Lakers coach.

    Even though I had a feeling it wouldn’t happen, I would have liked to see Phil Jackson give it one last go around and build another champion with this talented, yet one dimensional Knicks team.

      I have the feeling that Jackson would never coach a team without at least one HOF player (Jordan, Shaq, Kobe). Plus working for Dolan wouldn’t make the job any more appealing. imo with the way the Knicks suddenly turned it around under Woodson, I think he deserves the job.
      Just be thankful they haven’t brought back Isiah Thomas…yet.

        Not a Knicks fan so if they wanna bring back Thomas it’s fine with me just thought it would be cool to see Jackson on the sideline again.
