On Guru Basketball: Knicks Coaching Career Requirements: the Very Qualified for Slimming

  • Jeff Hornacek lasted just two seasons with the Knicks

He joined Jeff Hornacek on the unemployment line, after Hornacek's two-year stint as the New York Knicks' coach apparently ended in the wee hours Thursday morning.

Hornacek was sacked following the Knicks' regular season finale on Wendesday, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. Kurt Rambis, the associate head coach under Hornacek, was also relieved of his duties.

Stackhouse has been the head coach of the Toronto Raptors' G-League affiliate, Raptors 905, since last season and led them to a league title and was named Coach of the Year.

The ouster sends the Knicks in search of their 11th coach since Jeff Van Gundy resigned in the 2001-02 season.

Vogel didn't get any breaks this season, as Magic players combined to miss a combined 227 games due to injuries or illnesses, and a 4-27 record from November 11 to January 12 sent Orlando careening back to the draft lottery.

Facebook CEO apologizes for data misuse
This is not the first time Zuckerberg has shown or hinted that he cares for his privacy in ways the regular Facebook users don't. As many as 87 million users was improperly obtained by the political consulting and data-mining firm Cambridge Analytica .

Robinson, the ex-Oregon State head coach and brother of former United States First Lady Michelle Obama - now is the Knicks' vice president of player and organization development and is considered a long-shot candidate, according to Isola.

Hornacek was hired by then-team president Phil Jackson and then-GM Mills prior to the 2016-17 season.

If the Knicks are looking for a player's coach, then Fizdale might just be that given his reputation as someone who builds strong relationships with most of his players.

Hornacek, previously a head coach for three years in Phoenix, was surprised when he became Jackson's choice, since they had little relationship other than facing off in the NBA Finals when Hornacek played for Utah and Jackson coached the Chicago Bulls.

Fred Hoiberg, another Iowa State alumnus in the NBA coaching ranks, will still be the head coach of the Chicago Bulls next season, President of Basketball Operations John Paxson told reporters Thursday. They are out of the playoffs for the fifth season in a row, and they own just one playoff series victory in the past 18 years. Beyond that, the report indicates that "Knicks management believes Wright would be a ideal candidate for a rebuilding club" and, of course, James Dolan boasts the considerable resources necessary to lure a top-tier college coach from a seemingly flawless situation.
