More than six years after Phil Jackson never met him to discuss the possibility of training the triangle, Mike Woodson is officially back with the Knicks.
The Knicks have finally announced the rest of their coaching staff under Tom Thibodeau with Woodson, Johnnie Bryant of Utah, Andy Greer and Dice Yoshimoto being officially appointed. The Knicks had already announced the hiring of Kenny Payne so that the University of Kentucky could move on to replace him.
“With these hires, we have added extensive experience and knowledge in basketball that will be of great service to our players and our organization,” Thibodeau said in a statement. “All of our coaches have had a high level of success in college, in the NBA or internationally. We are putting together a well-rounded and hardworking coaching staff who will embody everything we want to be: responsibility, development, teaching and a winning culture”.
