The Head Coach of the New York Knicks is a done deal.
Mike Woodson, owner of an impressive 18-6 regular season record after taking over for Mike D'Antoni on March 14, 2012 will be at the helm for the next three seasons.
Hiring Woodson may end up being the perfect choice for the Knicks. It does seem a bit odd that the team neglected to even contact or interview any other candidates for the job.
That's a very nice endorsement of Mike Woodson but it's still an odd way to go about things.
Would you buy a house after looking at only one residence? Would you buy a car after one stop, at one dealership, and one test drive?
Maybe Woodson is that rare off-the-rack suit that fits perfectly the moment you try it on. That's rare though, and when one considers the list of other available names on the market, even those who may back Woodson might find it odd that the Knicks didn't at least kick the tires on these guys.
