Knicks’ Mike Woodson expects to be coach after All-Star Break
New York Knicks head coach Mike Woodson says he expects to still be the coach of the team after the All-Star break.
Woodson’s job status has been discussed throughout the season, particularly because the team currently sits at 11 games under .500.
“Again, guys, this is not about me,” Woodson said, via ESPN.com. “Unless you guys know something I don’t know, then the only thing I can say is I’m going to be back.
“Unless you guys know something, I’m the coach of the Knicks and that’s all I know at this point.”
The Knicks (20-31) are two games out of the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. They have lost four of their last five games.
“They know it’s dangling,” Woodson said Sunday after the team lost to Oklahoma City. “My theme to our players is that ‘Woodson’s a big boy. He’s been around the block a few times.’ It’s a part of the business if it happens.”
