Knicks: Mike Woodson interviews for the vacant coaching job

The New York Knicks are continuing to interview coaching candidates, with Mike Woodson reportedly in the next row.

For Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News, Woodson will meet the Knicks on Friday.

The Knicks met Tom Thibodeau for the second time Thursday, for Marc Berman of the New York Post.

Berman noted that Thibodeau “has the path within the job”, but Knicks president Leon Rose plans to interview “at least 11 candidates.”

Kurt Helin, Jason Kidd, Kenny Atkinson, Mike Brown, Ime Udoka, Will Hardy, Pat Delaney, Jamahl Mosley, Chris Fleming and Mike Miller of NBC Sports have already spoken to Rose about the Knicks job.

Miller took over as New York interim coach in December after David Fizdale was fired. The 55-year-old went 17-27 in 44 games before the season ended on March 11th.

The Knicks ended the 2019-20 season with a record 21-45, their seventh consecutive year ending below .500 and missing the playoffs.

Woodson had previously coached the Knicks from 2012 to 1414, making a 109-79 record. It led them to their last post-season appearance and to the Atlantic Division title in 2012-13 when they went 54-28. The Indiana native also has won 206-286 in six seasons as an Atlanta Hawks manager since 2004-09 and 2009-10.

After being fired from New York after the 2013-14 season, Woodson spent four years working as an assistant for the Los Angeles Clippers on Doc Rivers’ technical staff. He has quit the NBA since he resigned from that position in May 2018.
