D’Antoni Resigns as Knicks Coach
Well, that didn’t take long.
Just hours after reports that the Knicks’ players were’tuning out’ Mike D’Antoni and there was growing friction between him and Carmelo Anthony, the New York coach has resigned from his position according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.
Assistants Phil Weber and Dan D’Antoni are also gone too.
D’Antoni and Knicks owner James Dolan agreed on the decision to end his three year run with the club. “It was a mutual decision to no longer coach the Knicks … conflicting visions of the club’s future,” a source told Wojnarowski.
Current assistant and former Atlanta Hawks coach Mike Woodson will take over as the interim coach.
The Knicks have lost eight of their last ten and are currently in the ninth spot in the Eastern conference, just behind the Milwaukee Bucks.
