Who Should Replace Mike Woodson as NY Knicks Coach?

Yesterday, we took an in-depth look at three top-tier coaching candidates the New York Knicks could pursue once Mike Woodson—seat so heated it’s practically melted—finally gets the axe.

The conclusion: Jeff Van Gundy, Tom Thibodeau and Phil Jackson remain little more than pipe dreams, either by dint of personality or past Knickerbocker baggage.

With these rock-star candidates out of the question—at least for now—owner James Dolan would be wise to reel in a skipper who, while perhaps lacking in the aforementioned trio’s rings and accolades, can no less put his Knicks in a position to succeed going forward.

Today, we examine four coaches that stand a good chance of landing this no-doubt difficult duty.

The candidates will be ranked in ascending order, from “good fit” to “best fit possible.”

Throughout, we’re assuming one, rather big what-if eventually comes to pass: New York bringing back—and summarily rebuilding around—Carmelo Anthony.
