Mike Woodson Doesn’t Expect the Knicks to Fire Him

According to New York Knicks head coach Mike Woodson, despite the team’s struggles this season, his players’ ongoing support makes him confident that he won’t soon be unemployed. Per Newsday:

“Sure I do,” he said. “Sure I expect to be coaching, absolutely.”

Speculation remains that he could be dismissed before the Feb. 20 trade deadline. But he’s tuning it out, and he said he has the backing of Knicks brass.

“I think so,” Woodson said. “I’m still coaching the Knicks, that’s kind of how I’m looking at it. If I didn’t have the support, I would probably be looking for a job. That’s not the case. Guys are in my corner. I just got to keep pushing guys and trying to do my job to the best of my ability.”

Woodson said he hasn’t discussed his situation with the players, and added that he isn’t coaching any differently. “They know it’s dangling,” he said. “My theme to our players is that Woodson’s a big boy. He’s been around the block a few times. It’s a part of the business, if it happens. It’s never been about me.”

    Guys are not in his corner, lol. Even Jr. doesn’t even know whats going on, he is too busy missing shots.
    Last year was lucky, they have so many 3 point experts. This year they gave all up for Barg???? Actually Jason Kids was coaching last year, that why they have a 50 wins.
