Former Indiana player Mike Woodson fired by the Knicks

The New York Knicks announced Monday morning that they have fired head coach Mike Woodson, the former Indiana and Broad Ripple star, after the Knicks missed the playoffs with a 37-45 record. 

It was an anticipated move by new team president Phil Jackson, who also relieved Woodson’s entire staff of its duties.

There was a rumor last month that Woodson would replace Tom Crean as Indiana’s coach, but that rumor was completely and totally debunked as false.
